Volunteer Befriender – Buckinghamshire

Location: Buckinghamshire

We all need a helping hand or listening ear – sometimes more so due to health, isolation or recovery following an operation. We are seeking Befrienders to provide assistance to Support Workers in delivering support to clients to help them prevent or reduce social isolation. You will be a part of our Prevention Matters service.

How you can make a difference to people’s lives as a Befriender:

  • Increase or maintain social links such as attending local events, transport to coffee mornings
  • Accompany clients on GP or hospital appointments
  • Teach clients new digital skills such as email, Skype or how to search the web.
  • Practical support in the garden or a spot of DIY in their home
  • Assistance with hoarding disorder
  • Support a carer who is feeling isolated.
