Can you help?

As a volunteer

We value our volunteer befrienders as essential members of the team. They enable us to provide a huge amount of additional support to our clients through befriending visits, escorting people to appointments and on outings.

Anyone over the age of 18 who lives locally and speaks English to a reasonable standard can apply. We need a range of volunteers that reflect the ethnic make-up of the borough. They need to be able to offer an average of 1-2 hours of their time each week, and are required to have a CRB check.

We offer induction training, supervision and support to our volunteers. They get the opportunity to attend certificated training sessions on key topics affecting older people such as memory loss and how to support people with hearing or visual impairment.

If you would like to be a volunteer befriender, please contact the Volunteer Co-ordinator for an application form.
