Summary

Befriending opportunity visiting older people in their own home, to reduce isolation and loneliness.

Detailed description

We carefully match our volunteer with a client who would like befriending. A visit is organised with the client, the volunteer and ourselves to introduce everyone, and if all goes well, the weekly, ongoing visits between the client and volunteer will be arranged.

The volunteer is supported by a dedicated member of staff.


This role will require you to initially come in and meet with us to discuss your interests and availability.


We then ask you to complete a DBS and attend our Induction course.


To apply, please click 'Join' and you will be asked a short question. We will then be in touch to discuss the next steps with you.
