    Befriender (Home Visitor)

    Coping with Cancer

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Our Volunteer Befrienders provide individuals and families with the opportunity for ongoing practical and emotional support to be conducted in the comfort of our clients’ own homes. Regular weekly, fortnightly or monthly visits by a befriender can, for example, enable a carer to take a break from their caring role for a couple of hours, provide a ‘listening ear’ for those who wish to share any issues or concerns, or involve accompanying a client on a shopping trip. For those individuals who are particularly isolated, regular visits from our home visitors assist in alleviating any feelings of loneliness they may be experiencing. The minimum commitment is 1-2 hours once a week or fortnight, on Monday to Friday. Befriending appointments usually take place during the day, however weekend appointments may be arranged at the discretion of the volunteer. You will be supported in your role by the Volunteer Coordinator.
