Befrienders Highland- Caithness

To provide a matched trained befriender to an individual over the age of 18 with mental ill health.


Current opportunities

This is a flexible opportunity to volunteer from home. You will be trained to support someone with mental ill health or memory difficulties by completing 4 modules with the help of the local coordinator. After training you need to commit to regular contact which could be as little as 20/30 minutes per week. As a distance volunteer you can chose to email, write or telephone someone facing isolation. All correspondence is conducted through a secure system to protect both parties in the befriending relationship. This is a confidential, non judgemental supported friendship [ no home visiting] Please note that unfortunately you need to be resident in the Highland Area as this charity is funded to provide a service within this catchment area.
