    The No1 Be-Friending Agency

    This opportunity takes place from 19 Sep 2018.

    The idea is to visit an older person at their home to spend time with them as they are isolated or alone. As a volunteer you will offer support to your befriendee, encouraging him or her to be as independent as possible. As Volunteer Befriender you will not only transform the life of the person you will assist but also yours. At the same time, there are other benefits of becoming a volunteer with us. Volunteering provides experience and builds skills which are valuable to employers. All the experience you gain you can put it on your CV. Additionally, you will benefit from training and on-going skills development, as well as friendly and professional support by our Volunteer Coordinators.
