What is Befriending?

Befriending is inspired by the basic social principals of inclusion, enjoyment and belonging. 

Inspired by the work of our Virtual Volunteers at the star of lockdown,  Befrienders connect and interact with our Young People over a common interest, skill or hobby, encouraging them to pursue the things they enjoy. 

It's all about having fun, building relationships, and encouraging Young People to do the things they enjoy. All of these things work to support those experiencing challenges with their mental health and well being.
