Get involved at About with Friends! Our organisation started with a handful of people around a kitchen table. It’s thanks to the involvement of people like you that we have grown to encompass our current base in Cromer, a shop and cafe.

It’s thanks to our staff both part-time and full-time that we are able to offer such quality services, but also volunteers who give up their time freely to make a difference to people’s lives.

Whether it’s volunteer drivers, catering support workers or office admin staff, the team at About with Friends is what makes us so special. Find out here how you can Get Involved, and how we have been helping out in our local community.

Over the last five years I have had a fortnightly, 2 hour designated gardening slot. I highly value your service and ethos.

About with Friends and you particularly, have done some great work with excellent outcomes for D. I was particularly pleased to hear that you are working on integration with the Youth Group as I felt he would miss out on peer interaction if he didn’t come to college.

Thank you for taking K to Milton Keynes on holiday, it made her extremely happy. Selfishly, it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite after 16 years of constant care.

I’ve got my life back

To all the staff at About with Friday, I had a wonderful time with you guys, and I want to say a big thank you for looking after me. Love from K.

I always have a smile on my face after a day with the members of the team. They are all individuals and each, in their own way, bring joy to my life. They are all much appreciated and I enjoy the gardening of course!

Just a short note to thank you all for your help with our daughter. she has spent many years at school with little improvement in her behaviour and speech, yet in just a few weeks she has been with you guys the improvements in both areas are plain to see.

I am not sure what the different methods used are but please continue as you are, as life at the moment for us as a family is greatly improved because of your input.

We are very aware of her complex needs and how she can change like the wind but we will continue to enjoy the fruits of your labours.

A big thank you to yourself and the About with Friends staff for another great trip! J had a fantastic time, going on the Harry Potter Studio Tour, which he had wanted to do for ages and ages.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone else that supported H on the recent trip – she had an amazing time. I enjoyed look at the Twitter feed to see what you had been up to.
