What is expected of me?
Befriending volunteers are expected to call or visit their friend regularly. This usually involves a commitment of around 30 minutes to an hour per week, over a long period of time. Volunteers will also need to attend a short training session, provide references, and undergo a DBS check. You can read more about the Befriending project and watch a video here.
