Opportunity description: 

As a Befriending Volunteer, you will provide companionship to a lonely older person in Westminster.

Our Befriending Service matches a local older isolated Westminster resident with a local befriender or someone who either works or studies in the borough. In particular, we are in need of volunteers to befriend in Westminster postcode districts beginning with W2, W10, NW8 and WC2, but we also welcome anyone who wants to befriend anywhere in Westminster.

A Befriending Volunteer provides a valuable service to our organisation by spending their time with an older isolated person, providing opportunities for much needed companionship and social interaction - hence reducing social isolation in the community.

Location: 
Volunteering will take place in the City of Westminster.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?: 
We have Covid safety measures in place for our volunteers and safety guidance will be provided to volunteers prior to commencing their role.
