What is Befriending?
Befriending is where volunteers take an active role in providing companionship and support to carers in their local community.
We would love to find more volunteers to offer a friendly face and a listening ear to carers – do you think this might be you?
Your volunteering role may include:
- Visiting carers in their homes
- Making a regular telephone call to a carer
- Meeting a carer for a social visit in a cafe
- Accompanying a carer to a social activity or supporting them with a shared hobby
Your support can make a real difference to the life of a carer.
Volunteering has a vast range of benefits including learning new skills, which could help you get back into work or enable you to play an active role in the community.
We will offer:
- A first class induction, training and support along with reimbursement of local travel expenses
- A reference to future prospective employers
- An opportunity to make a real difference to the life of a carer and their loved one
- A chance for you to meet some new people and make new friendships
