Opportunity: Family Befriender

Befrienders are carefully matched with families in order to build a trusting relationship that will enable them to take steps to live lives free from the consequences of poverty. The regular visits from a befriender may involve assisting a family to make contact with other organisations and engage with activities that might prove helpful to them in terms of reducing isolation and increasing engagement, via a positive empowering relationship with the volunteer. The relationship minimum time is 6 months once trained.

Please note that Family Befriender must be at least 23 years old.

Opportunity: Fundraising Volunteer

The volunteer will be contributing to the work of Westminster Befriend a Family by assisting with finding new sources of funding, as well as raising the profile of the charity through creating links with outside agencies.
