Norfolk befriending service volunteer

Could you join or team as a volunteer to support people in Norfolk?

This role would see you providing support for carers within the community. This can range from wellbeing support, companionship (having a chat and a cup of tea), shopping, cleaning or gardening.

We are looking for volunteers to also provide company for the person carers look after so that carers can take a break – whether they want to go shopping, to an exercise class, to the hairdressers or doing something at home such as their own gardening or having a friend over for a cup of tea.

The support we provide can take place alongside any other care and support the carers may receive.

This is an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of carers and the people they care for, to meet new people, to use and enhance your existing skills and develop new, transferable skills.

Where you will be based 

The project is based across Norfolk and volunteers can agree to areas within the county they are willing to consider travelling to.
