Volunteer as a Befriender

Becoming a Volunteer Befriender takes a certain kind of individual! We are looking for both Telephone and Face-to-face Befrienders, who will operate within government guidelines.

We ask for a reliable commitment of a minimum of 6 months, as we take matching our participants with  befriending volunteers very seriously.

It’s a hugely important and personable role. The professional friendship that can develop can quite literally save a life, it really is life-changing.

An ideal befriending volunteer will have a reasonable knowledge of mental health, be empathic and compassionate, non-judgemental and also be dedicated. We find that people who are looking to make a significant difference to someone’s life are the perfect fit.
