Side by Side (formerly Elefriends) is a supportive social online community where you can be yourself. We all know what it’s like to struggle sometimes, but now there’s a safe place to listen, share and be heard.
Shared experiences and perspectives are valuable and powerful. In this way people don't just get help, they give help too. In the good times and the bad. We can’t provide 1:1 or emergency support for people in a crisis. If this is what you need right now, you can find ways to access it on our website.
