Opportunity: Family Befriender

Opportunity description: 

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.

Location: 
Befriending sessions occur in family*s home.
