The Sitting & Befriending Service
We can help find a Sitter/Befriender to support your family, give you a break from caring or to be a companion to your child or teenager helping them to access social and leisure activities. Sitters are interviewed, DBS checked, referenced and trained. They can:
- Babysit at home while you go out,
- Help you with the children at home,
- Accompany your child or young person to an activity they enjoy,
- Take part with your child/young person at an activity,
- 'Hang out' at home with your young person while you go out.
