We have three extra care supported living services for older people with additional needs in the Bromley borough.

Initially the befriender role will involve bringing together residents to the communal area and running a coffee morning.

Once you have built a connection there will be an opportunity to develop the role and spend time in the local community. This could include going for a walk, a trip to a local café, or accessing the local library.


As a volunteer with Creative Support we offer training for your role, access to a volunteer supervisor, an induction, a monthly Volunteer newsletter, and an online volunteer’s peer support group.




·         Prepare and hand out refreshments during the event.

·         Circulate during the event chatting with attendees and making sure the atmosphere is light and fun.

·         Wash up the cups and plates, and tidy away to ensure the room is returned to its original use.

·         Report any concerns to Creative Support staff members.

·         Attend regular supervisions and undertake all training provided.
