Volunteer Befrienders

Befrienders, as part of the circle of support, help the focus person to build their confidence and participate in social activities within their community.

As a Volunteer Befriender, you will be a part of a person’s circle of support and help the focus person to build their confidence through participating in social activities within their community. This may include going for walks, participating in clubs or classes together, or attending Equal Futures’ monthly social events.

Befrienders attend the circle meetings (approx. bimonthly) and meet 1:1 with their focus person weekly or fortnightly. Equal Futures supports you throughout your volunteering.

Our befrienders are:

  • Warm and friendly
  • Approachable
  • Compassionate
  • Flexible
  • Dependable
  • Empathetic
  • Reliable
  • Good listeners
