We have an amazing group of about 25 volunteer befrienders at the moment, it’s a really lovely and supportive network to be a part of.

You can become a befriender at Twins Trust if you are a parent or grandparent who has lost one or more babies or children that are twins, triplets or more.

Becoming a Befriender can be really rewarding and feel like a positive step in our journey of grief. We have regular training for all our befrienders and are always on hand for advice. It is something that you can do as much or as little of as you want, depending on how busy you are over time.

All our current befrienders have lost a baby or babies during pregnancy on in the first two years of life.

If you have personal experiece of losing one of your twins or multiples in their childhood and would like to become a befriender we would really like to hear from you.
