We are running a brand new service and are looking for people who are interested in becoming befrienders to people over the age of 55.
Volunteering with us provides an incredibly rewarding experience. As part of our volunteer befriending team you will be undertaking work that will be changing people’s lives for the better.
You will engage in a range of one-to-one, fun activities with your matched befriendee once a week or once a fortnight. As a volunteer befriender you will work on key skills with your match, including confidence and self-esteem, and tailor your visits to activities your befriendee enjoys. We provide training and opportunities that will improve your life skills and boost employability; but, more importantly, we support and mentor you to ensure that you get what you need from your volunteering experience.
