With the easing of Government restrictions, The Share Community are seeking volunteer befrienders to help local residents with learning disabilities get back out into the community.
Share is a registered charity with a site in Tooting providing support to adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. Their befriending project matches people with similar interests to go for walks, bike rides, or coffee.
Befriending is incredibly rewarding, providing companionship to those who are socially isolated and regular contact with a friendly face outside their usual circle.
I am told that reliability and being a good listener are the only prerequisites to be a volunteer befriender.
If this sounds like you, Share would love to hear from you! Click here to find out more.
