Could you help your community?

Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire are looking for volunteer befrienders to help members of their community. Volunteers would be paired with someone from their area who needs a little help and support.

Many people find it difficult to do the weekly shop or get out the house for a coffee and a chat. You could be making a real difference to someone else’s life. Befriending can fit around your plans and can be anything from weekly to once or twice a month it usually only takes an hour or two.

Project Manager, Martin Horner said “Befriending is a really enjoyable way to help another member of your community who’s in need of that little bit of assistance. There are a range of activities that befrienders can help others with so please get in touch if you think you can help.”

Befriending could involve the use of a car for which a millage allowance will be given. Training can be provided by the Volunteer Centre.

If you’re interested in befriending and want some more information please get in touch with Volunteer Centre North Warwickshire by calling 01827 717 073 or emailing martin.horner@vcnw.org.uk

The befriending scheme is part of the Help at Hand project funded by the Big Lottery: Reaching Communities Fund.
