Connect 2 Befrienders Wanted
Closing Date: 22/02/2019
Could you change a disabled young person's life by giving them the gift of friendship?
Many of the disabled young people we work with need support to get out and do things in their spare time. Befrienders give these young people the chance to go out without their parents, do things they enjoy, and develop the independence skills they need to do this themselves.
This is a great project to get involved in – it’s so valuable for the young people and their families and very rewarding for the befrienders.
All we ask is that you’re able to commit to meeting with the young person once a fortnight and to keep this up for a minimum of nine months.
We currently have young people waiting to be matched with befrienders so if this could be you, please get in touch with Amma.
Deadline for applications is Friday 22nd February 2019, with training taking place at the beginning of March.
