Our Volunteer befrienders will visit or help befriendees undertake social activities that they enjoy but may find difficult to do on their own, such as shopping, going out for a coffee or simply popping round for a chat.
Our Befrienders are just ordinary people, who are happy to share some time each week with a Befriendee. Learning to enjoy each other’s company, the volunteers talk to, go out with and meet up with their Befriendees. In other words, be a ‘friend’.
Volunteers do not:
Each individual (volunteer and befriendee) is responsible for their own expenses (tea, meals etc). TRIP do pay mileage expenses.
All of our Volunteer Befrienders are trained and DBS checked.
