Warrington Voluntary Action. Engaging People. Empowering Communities.

Introduction to Befriending

2 half days (10:00 - 14:00). Fully funded, unaccredited.

Befriending schemes reduce social isolation in our communities. They encourage independent living, and support people to build strong relationships, which support more resilient communities. This course is for volunteer befrienders, and befriending scheme coordinators. It offers a basic introduction to the processes and procedures of a befriending scheme, including important safeguarding tips, and the rights and responsibilities of a befriending volunteer.
