“I look forward to phoning my befriender scheme friends. Talking about diabetes was the ice breaker for us in our first few meetings but it rarely is now."
Tom Rush is one of our longest standing volunteers and very much a valued member of the diabetes UK charity in Northern Ireland. Tom's most recent role as a volunteer throughout the last year has been becoming a befriender. He has had a very positive experience with all his referrals.
