Do you enjoy meeting new people? Befrienders required
Do you enjoy meeting new people? Could you spare an hour a week? Would you like to work with people with physical disabilities who may be lonely and isolated because they struggle to get out and about? If this sounds like what you are looking for then this could be the role for you.
We are looking for volunteers to act as befrienders to people with physical disabilities. You would be asked to provide one to one companionship and support to one of our clients by sharing interests, skills and hobbies with them in their own homes.
This could involve: making cards, knitting, sewing, crafts, drawing, flower arranging, organ playing, doing jigsaws and puzzles, gardening, watching films, chatting over coffee and socialising. You may also agree to take someone out on trips to eat out, go to concerts, go to the cinema, go swimming etc.
