On Saturday 9 March, 17 volunteers and 4 members of our management team gathered for lunch at The Stables and an opportunity to meet and chat with one another. Alison Green from the management team thanked everyone for the time and commitment they give to volunteering week by week and gave an update on the future of the befriending service. It was a great event . . . thank you to everyone who came!
The Befriending Service is currently operating at its maximum number of matches, volunteers to friends, but we want to maintain the standard of care and support for volunteers for which the Project is renowned. Once funding is secured, we will look at appointing a further Befriending Co-ordinator to enable the work to expand.
