About Bradford Buddies

Mencap match buddies to a volunteer who shares similar interests so they can go out together as a pair and do activities in their local community like going to some live music, a theatre show, bowling, shopping or the cinema. 

Social get-togethers at Bradford Buddies

As well as matching pairs of buddies and volunteers we also organise regular socials in Bradford like gig nights, coffee mornings, meals out and bowling. Through these group socials you can meet other like-minded people and make new friends.

Volunteering at Bradford Buddies

"Everyone is friendly, professional and reliable. I love hanging out with everyone. It’s been nice to get to know Bradford as I’m not from here originally and learn loads of new skills. I like the fact we’re a small family and if we need any help or support we can get in touch"

- Vicky, a Bradford Buddies volunteer

We’re always looking for new buddies and volunteers
