Befriender

Aims

The aim of the Befriending Service is to provide one-to-one contact to an individual who has little or no access to their own social network.  This can lead to an individual becoming lonely and isolated, and, in some cases, suffering a relapse of their health.  A volunteer Befriender enables the individual to build confidence and start increasing their own social network.

Tasks:

• To establish and build a befriending relationship with the client.  To keep regular contact with the client and to provide support that may be required to enable the client to live a more independent and resourceful life
• To spend time and share activities with the client
• To improve the quality of life by building or extending a supportive environment

Hours

Minimum of 1 hour per week, to be arranged with Befriendee.
Please note that this service operates on an open-ended basis
