Befriender – Maylands WA
Do you have a couple of hours a week to spend with a socially isolated member of the community to help improve their outlook?
55 Central Inc is a specialist organisation that works to break the cycle of homelessness. They are seeking volunteers to join their Befriender program. This is a rewarding role providing one on one social support to clients who are established in independent living to encourage their independence and provide companionship to reduce their social isolation.
No specific skills needed, but volunteers will need to be accepting and understanding of the special needs of those who may be living socially isolated lives. Volunteers should be aged over 18 years and able to commit to 2 – 3 hours a week, including weekends.
