“The Young Persons Befriending Service offers 8-18 year olds who are vulnerable, at risk or socially isolated, the chance to share fun activities; learn new skills – eg swimming, coping in new social situations; explore new hobbies and interests and realise their full potential.
Their relationships with volunteer befrienders build up over time through weekly visits and provide the young people whose circumstances are complex, stressful and often distressing, with support guidance and sometimes respite from their difficulties. The foundation of positive regard and consistency enables the young person to like and trust themselves, take on new challenges and build hopes and plans for the future. Your support would help enrich the experience of both young people and volunteer befrienders.”
