The Social Network

Looking for easy ways to meet new people? You've come to the right place... 

The Befriend Social Network makes it easy to meet new people, have fun social experiences together, and see what grows from there! We're a community of more than 7,000 people from all backgrounds and walks of life, we all live in Perth, and we're all open to new connections. Our bigger vision is of a stronger, more connected, inclusive society that embraces diversity and welcomes everyone - So all we ask is that you come with an open mind, and treat others how you'd like to be treated.

With Befriend, you can meet others through all kinds of welcoming social gatherings, such as afternoon teas, outdoor adventures, food explorations, art & craft, picnics, dog walks, movies, board games and social sports. Each event is planned and hosted by a Host, a local resident just like you who is the friendly face to greet you upon arrival, introduce you around, and make sure everything stays on track. 

Play your part in building community

We encourage you to start your own group, host your own gatherings, if you're up for the challenge! This isn't a community program created by us, for you - It's a community network created by people of Perth, for people of Perth. The community you want to see starts with you! We'll give you the confidence, tools and connections with other Hosts to help you get started and meet others who can support you along the way - Learn more about hosting with Befriend.
