Befriender - Orkney

  • VO91953


Description

The Young Person's Befriending Project works alongside young people (aged 8 - 18) offering them support through a volunteer befriender.

Befrienders meet with their young person for a couple of hours every fortnight and take part in a wide variety of activities together. Over these sessions the volunteers aims is to offer support and encouragement, introduce new activities, build the young persons confidence and self-esteem and offer real friendship to them.

We need volunteers of all different walks of life, as no two of our young people are the same!
