We are looking for Befrienders and Volunteer Drivers.

We are looking for Befrienders to help support those in the community that may have become lonely and isolated as a result of disabilities or mental health. We aim to reduce loneliness and isolation by helping them engage back into their community. This could include: 
- Supporting Vulnerable adults in the community 
- Providing company for someone who is lonely and isolated 
- Visiting people in their home and/or assisting them to get out into the community 
- Helping someone to go shopping 
- Supporting someone to be able to access community activities 
- Helping someone with small practical tasks e.g. decluttering, sorting paperwork/ letters 

Volunteer drivers 
We are looking for Volunteer drivers to help those in the community that cannot get around by themselves. This could include: 
- Driving someone to community events and activities 
- Taking someone shopping 
- Taking someone to a hospital appointment   


"The first time I met Christine I was a bit nervous but now we get on really well like we have known each other for years. We laugh and we have fun – it’s very rewarding. Christine is so grateful for the support yesterday she told me she’d had a really lovely day. I think she only has one family member and she lives a long way away.
It’s been absolutely wonderful being part of this project – I really enjoy it. I really feel I belong".
Lydia (Befriender)
