Restore Annual Report 2020

2020 was quite the year for all of us.  Like so many others, here at Restore we faced a big challenge: How could an organisation focused on face-to-face befriending adapt to lockdown and social distancing?

Our amazing team of volunteer befrienders adapted to remote befriending, helping to combat isolation and loneliness when it was most needed.  We also made a total of 67 new matches in 2020, and ended the year with 117 ongoing befriending matches.

To find out more about how we dealt with 2020’s challenges, the impact remote befriending had on our refugee and and asylum seeker friends, as well as everything else that happened at Restore in 2020, read our Annual Report.  There is information about befriending, group social activities, motivating for action, working for change, a funding update and what the future holds for Restore.  Click below to read.
