Being a Befriender: The Good Practice Guide

The Good Practice Guide Being a Befriender is a resource exclusive to member organsiations. This booklet was launched during Volunteer Week 2019 as a resource for volunteers to support them in their role. This can be provided to volunteers who are new to befriending or to those who want a refresher. 

Each section of the booklet is dedicated to key factors of befriending, such as boundaries or the importance of support and supervision sessions. As a befriending project, you can use this as a resource to support your volunteer training or to give you inspiration for creating your own volunteer handbook specifically for your project.
