To be a Befriending Volunteer is to provide over the phone companionship and support to adults, the elderly and other vulnerable people who are isolated and lonely.  To provide support, guidance and encouragement to people accessing community services and activities. To be a caring listener for people who may not have others they feel comfortable talking to.  You are to help raise the spirits or just listen to whomever you are talking to.


What skills do I need?

To be a Befriending Volunteer you need to have good communication skills- the ability to listen and speak to people appropriately and do the right things while we're listening and speaking-are at the heart of befriending. The ability to talk to people without prejudice.  Commitment and reliability. Respect for confidentiality. Friendliness and warmth.  Empathy and resilience.
