About Befriending Service

Our befriending service is provided for young people aged 12 and over. A regular volunteer or session worker befriends the young person, usually out in the community and works on enhancing the young person's social skills. We work closely with the young person and their family in deciding what activities the young person wants to do, for example attending a youth or sports group, shopping or a visit to the cinema. We help the young person integrate into mainstream groups.
