“Matched with a Member from Sierra Leone”

I was matched with a Member from Sierra Leone who I never would have met in the normal course of life. It’s been my pleasure to get to know him and talk about our different life experiences.


“It’s a real friendship”

The relationship is so rewarding. I love spending time with them. It’s a real friendship.



“I’m really reaping the benefits”

It’s really nice to know that there are people like you all out there that care that people are lonely and isolated. I’m very happy with your service. Such a lovely idea and concept, I’m really reaping the benefits.



“You picked the right one”

You could have picked anyone but you picked the right one. My life is difficult but the people coming into my life are complementary and helping it to improve.



“Makes me politically and socially engaged”

I’ve gained insight that we all live inside our social bubbles and don’t necessarily interact with other people. Being a part of BuddyHub is insightful, inspiring and makes me more politically and socially engaged.


“It has given me a new lease of life”

The experience has been invaluable in getting my dull life moving forward again. I am so delighted I am part of BuddyHub.


“I’m inspired”

I’m inspired by the practical support people can offer during hard times.



“It has filled a definite hole in mum’s life”

Following my father’s passing, mum retreated further into her own company. It gives me considerable peace of mind to know she is having some social interaction outside of the narrow confines of her two children. It has filled a definite hole in mum’s life!

“It’s like I’ve woken up!”

I’m getting back to living and not just functioning. I’m starting to do things I was interested in before. It’s like I’ve woken up!


“So glad I joined”

I am a carer for my husband, who had a stroke which took away his speech. I joined BuddyHub because I thought it would be a good way to meet new people and have a chat about things. I am so glad I did!
