Companionship / Befriending

 

Companionship or what is also called befriending or mentoring is when you visit someone who needs that one to one provision. These tend to be older people, but they can be those with disabilities, young people or those with lived experiences.

These roles are great if you don’t want to mix with lots of people or want to see the impact of your support on one person. They can also be quite flexible, as they normally can fit into a busy lifestyle, depending on what the client needs.

Due to the nature of these roles you will need to have a police check, references and attend training.
