Could you be a Befriending Volunteer?

Thursday, 9 February 2017

Great news, our new Befriending Service in Fareham and Gosport goes live this week. Befriending volunteers support people in attending workshops, groups and courses, and they also give signposting advice for people coming to the end of their work with our wellbeing service.

Senior Wellbeing Advisor Emma Dunbar is co-ordinating the Befriending Service and says, “We’re very grateful to Hampshire County Council for funding this service. We’d also like to thank Gosport Leisure Centre who have helped us set up a gym group, supported by the Befrienders, to help people connect and be more active in the community whilst putting their wellbeing skills in to practice.”

If you would like to find out more about volunteering for the Befriending Service, please contact Emma on 01329 281 445, or afg@solentmind.org.uk.

Full training will be given.
