Medway Voluntary Action (MVA) are working in partnership with Carers FIRST (CF), Age UK Medway and other local voluntary & community sector (VCS) and statutory organisations to deliver and co-ordinate befriending support in Medway. Befriending can be defined as: an emotional, supportive, mutual relationship in which companionship is provided on a regular basis by a volunteer. Befriending is not: the carrying out of any personal care, housework, or other domestic tasks. Key Principles: • Progression – Individuals accessing support will be encouraged and supported to nurture their own social connections within their local community, empowering them to move on and even help befriend other local people. • Partnership Working –The pilot will connect and communicate with statutory, community and voluntary Partners and commissioned frontline staff (e.g. • Capitalise on Existing Assets – Operating on a principle of accessing existing community and commissioned assets in Medway where possible. There are four core elements to the project: 1. 2. 3. 4. Some important things you should know before making a referral to us: • The key criteria for being eligible for befriending support is that the person being referred is living in isolated circumstances or has little social contact. o For individuals aged 18 years and over o Priority given to those with a long term illness or who are Disabled o Targeted at those with limited/ no family or friends who visit them and/or who spend long periods of time alone. o Each referral will be considered on an individual basis and those not appropriate will be signposted to VCS & Wellbeing Navigators o Not suitable for complex cases e.g. o Aim is to be a short term intervention that is person centred so no defined time limit set however the ultimate aim is to discharge individual from services once connected within community. • All referrals for befriending support will be reviewed by MVA, who will arrange or signpost to appropriate befriending support. • If you know someone who might benefit from the befriending support we offer, then this form can be completed by any of the following: o A relative, friend, health & social care or any other support worker – in this situation, the person being referred must be aware of, and have agreed, to the referral; or o An individual wishing to refer themselves to the befriending scheme Should you require further information or help completing the referral or wish to discuss a case before referring please contact our Befriending Programme Officer on 01634 564939 or email at befriending@mva.org.uk.
