If you can spare a few hours a week or fortnightly and want to make a difference to a child's life, come along to find out about being a befriender. We will be there to talk to and you can meet other befrienders already making a difference.
Our befrienders bring with them a wide range of valuable skills and life experiences to help families who are under resourced and under pressure. We want to hear from mature, trustworthy and reliable adults, aged 21+ who can regularly spend 3-4 hours minimum a fortnight with a child over an extended period. We need people who care about children’s well-being and who welcome the opportunity to work with parents and our charity team to improve young lives.
