The Befriender Training Toolkit (2024) is now live

We are excited to launch our Befriender Training Toolkit for 2024. This is free and exclusive to our members and is designed to support befriending projects with the recruitment and training of their befrienders. Training is a prime opportunity to make a great first impression, supporting the retention of volunteers. We hope our Befriender Training Toolkit can assist with the creation of a strong befriending team. Our toolkit has evolved each year since it began in 2021 and we hope this new version can provide the necessary tools and inspiration for designing your training programme. 

We have included PowerPoints, videos, Podcasts, infographics, Reading materials, Interactive activities, and handouts / reflective work for your befrienders. Please click on Befriender Toolkit: Training resources for members (2024) to see a full list of the content of our toolkit, or click the button located below to see an overview. 

Scroll down for available dates of How To Sessions, where the new material will be introduced and launched for 2024. Not a member but curious about the content? The sessions are free to attend and members and non-members are welcome to attend.
