In just a few hours on a regular basis volunteer befrienders support service users to take part in activities meaningful to them.
This could be by:
Supporting someone to re-join a hobby, club or network of friends
Helping rebuild an individual’s confidence to go out
Signposting to other appropriate services
Simply providing company and conversation
Each befriending relationship will be different and we will do our best to match you to a service user with similar interests.
Ideally you will:
be reliable and have the ability to relate well to others
have a warm, friendly, adaptable, caring approach
be open-minded and tolerant of different lifestyle and values
be able to work within personal and organisational boundaries
Experience of caring either in a paid or unpaid capacity would be an advantage but is not essential.
