Finding or becoming a companion is easy

Download the companiions befriending app for free on your phone or tablet. Or access everything on desktop, if you prefer.

Here’s how it works

Our app, at a glance

Getting started

For organisers

Create a profile for your loved one

Add their details, a photo and ideally a video too. Be sure to mention any health issues, likes, dislikes and needs companions should know about.

Manage your loved one’s diary

Make it easy for companions to offer their help and companionship by creating ‘visits’ to show when your loved one needs support.
