Befriending is EXCELLENT!
It’s now one of only four young persons’ befriending projects to hold the Gold level of this award, which was developed by Befriending Networks, based in Scotland with international membership. Jean Inglis, Co-ordinator of the Service, said ‘The application process was hard work, but we wanted to do justice to the service and all the people who’ve contributed to it – our young people, volunteers and staff, past and present’.
Quality in Befriending requires evidence of good practice across nine different elements of befriending.
Jean added: ‘We hope the award inspires people to get involved in the service – whether they are young people and parents, volunteers, partner agencies or funders.’
