We are looking for a caring Volunteer Befriender to befriend one of our lovely residents at our service. He has no contact with his family but once engaged can be very active and sociable in the community. He struggles with aspects of motivation and with certain tasks such as using his computer. The gentleman would love a volunteer to come in on a weekly basis to spend time with him. He doesn’t like to go anywhere on his own but has a list of places that he’d like to go with company! He enjoys art, restaurants, bowling, music and museums.

 He is down to earth, loves gardening and painting. He watches football and loves to read comic books and he has recently quit smoking! This gentleman can achieve anything once he is motivated and encouraged in the right way.

This is a great volunteer role for someone wanting to gain experience in health and social care or someone that would like to give back to a member of their local community by supporting them to engage more with others.
