Cyril Flint Befrienders is a charity working to combat social isolation and loneliness in older people by offering a free one-to-one befriending service. The charity was established after a gentleman called Cyril confided in his care worker that he was about to spend his 23rd Christmas alone since the passing of his wife. His story was shared in the local press and we were inundated with invites for Cyril. It also became evident that Cyril was not the only older person living a lonely and isolated life in the community and we experience a very high demand for our service.

We are keen to link up with local organisations and individuals who want to help us raise much needed funds to enable us to continue in our mission and to help us increase awareness of our charity and the work we are doing. Visit our website or our Facebok @CyrilFlintBefriender for more information.

I help ambitious businesses, who have little time to focus on their people issues, become more confident in managing their HR by offering a bespoke and affordable service suited to their needs. 

Businesses can get bogged down with disengaged employees and this can hugely influence the working environment. I'm aware that even the best Managers sometimes need reassurance to know they are doing the right thing. Therefore, I help my clients deal with people issues in a no-nonsense manner and enable them to challenge with confidence. I offer a HR peace of mind and most importantly, allow them to focus on the important stuff.

Does this sound like you? If so, feel free to connect and start a conversation about your HR challenges.
