  • Meeting up with a woman/women on a regular basis (at least once a month – times to be decided by you and the woman) to provide the woman with a connection in the local community
  • Discuss with the woman and identify an area she’d like to work on e.g. going for coffee, joining a group, IT skills etc
  • Contributing to organising social activities with other volunteers and women using the service
