The Grange Befriending Scheme
The scheme is aimed at offering an informal social support by forming a trusting relationship with a Befriending Scheme Volunteer.
This scheme is aimed at people over the age of 18yrs who live in Markfield and suffer from social isolation, have a disability or ill-health.
About your befriending partnership
You will be introduced to your volunteer by the Support Services Manager. All volunteers are enhanced Criminal Record Bureau (DBS) and reference checked.
Your volunteer will establish a commitment to an agreed amount of time on a regular basis and try to set a time and date for your next meeting in advance to make sure it is convenient for both parties.
Volunteers cannot give medical or financial advice or assistance with filling in forms.
