Befrienders work with us to support children and young people on a one-to-one basis. The type of support provided depends on what has been agreed with the child, their primary carers and other agencies in terms of need and the child’s goals. This support usually takes place after school in the Rose Lane Centre. You need to have a genuine interest in promoting the children and young people’s rights and well-being. We are looking for caring people who are good listeners and have interests in activities such as sports, arts and crafts, cooking, playing games, going for walks and hanging out!
Befrienders need to commit to a minimum of approximately 2 hours per fortnight for befriending sessions, plus additional time for supervision, training and briefing sessions.
