Meet Valerie - Community Connector

Hi! I'm Valerie Weyland!

I'm a Befriend Community Builder for Armadale and Gosnells area (incuding Canning Vale). Befriend is a not for profit organisation which focuses on sparking community connections and creating a movement of togetherness.

We focus on supporting community-led warm and welcoming social gatherings (online and in-person), which includes virtual book clubs, board game nights, walking groups, aboriginal culture, mindfulness and so much more.

My aspiration is to continue to nurture and support initiating meaningful and long-term connections amongst community members. Ultimately, as humans we all desire to feel a deep sense of belonging and I aspire to empower communities in creating this space for others.

I look forward to meeting you!
