Current opportunity

The main role of volunteers will be to befriend people aged 16 years and over who are presently experiencing mental health difficulties or social isolation and loneliness. The volunteers will be matched with people with similar interests so they can engage in their local community in a variety of ways from meeting up in the community for a coffee and chat, going for a walk or a taking a trip to the cinema. Full induction, training and ongoing contact and support will be given regularly. All out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed including travel and mileage costs.
