We recruit and support individuals to become a volunteer befriender who gives support to a vulnerable young person aged 16-18 years. The young person each volunteer supports may be experiencing a number of challenges such as caring responsibilities, being in care, mental health issues, problems with drugs and alcohol or a lack of confidence. Volunteers will offer the young person a listening ear, take part in appropriate activities as requested by the young person. The volunteer may also support the individual in relation to their personal development by supporting the young person to undertake activities that will assist their college work or assisting the young people to volunteer.
