Befriending

Our befriending project currently has around 10 active volunteers whose activities are much appreciated by clients. Clients may be referred for a variety of reasons but tend to be people who are socially isolated.

There is no set formula for a befriending role. The majority of refugees or asylum seekers are happy to simply share time with someone who can visit regularly, but they may also need help with their English, assistance with filling in forms or just practical information about accessing a service and finding their way around.

Volunteers are of varying ages and from a variety of backgrounds. Many have been through the asylum process themselves. This service is offered only to asylum seekers, refugess and migrants in Coventry.

If you are interested in becoming a Befriender please contact Debby Lin, Volunteer Co - Coordinator
