About the Opportunity
Volunteer Now’s Befriending Scheme operates across Belfast and Castlereagh. People are referred to the scheme by Social Services who feel they are socially isolated usually due to poor physical health because of older age and/or lack of family support.

Volunteers are matched with one person and usually visit once a week for approximately an hour to providing company, aiming to build a supportive friendship and helping to combat loneliness.

Volunteers are needed for approx 1-2 hours per week, Monday to Friday (9am-5pm), though visits can be arranged for evenings and weekends if it suits both parties. Volunteers should be able to commit to a minimum of 6 months and be sensitive to other people’s beliefs and opinions.
