Advice and support on services for children and families

Volunteering Matters befriending project

This is a partnership between Volunteering Matters and social work services.

The Volunteering Matters Befriending Project provides volunteer befriending support to 40 children and young people who are experiencing social isolation and who are experiencing difficult times in their lives.

The volunteers act as positive adult role models to the young people. Through social, leisure and educational activities and outings with the young people, the volunteers encourage them to make positive changes in their lives which will benefit themselves and the local community.
