The aim of our befriending scheme is to agree with the client a range of beneficial activities to reduce social isolation. This will involve both signposting and supporting the individual to access services and participate in activities that improve their mental health.
Information for volunteers
We are setting up a befriending project for 18-25 year olds in Watford and the surrounding area. The project will consist of face to face (compliant with Covid 19 guidance) contact with a trained befriender. This befriending would be offered to clients for up to nine months during which the befriender would seek to work with the client once a week for 2 hours.
