The Befriender Training Toolkit (2024) is now live

In January 2024, our membership exclusive was launched. Active members at Befriending Networks can access the Befriender Training Toolkit for free - just make sure to log in first before registering for access below

The Befriender Training Toolkit can assist you with your creation of a strong befriending team. Training is an important element of recruitment and retention. Our toolkit has evolved each year since it began in 2021 and we hope the latest 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.
