Who cares about the carers? Fife Young Carers are looking for befrienders to support and encourage children and young people in attending activities. Giving just 2 hours a week can make a massive impact to a young person in your local area.
Do you have two hours a week to spare and love a good natter? Are you passionate about helping young carers in the community? Are you good with young people? If so then child and youth befriending could be the perfect volunteer role for you.
The children and young people are matched with a volunteer who provides companionship, supportive guidance, and access to a variety of activities, new experiences and opportunities. Short respite has been shown to have an incredible impact on a carer's mental health, letting them expand their social circle and putting them at reduced risk of crisis.
Fife Young Carers are looking for inspirational volunteers who are calm & patient and can support and encourage their young people to access local activities that will enable the young carer to live a life out with their caring role.
