Our befriending service, the Big Lottery funded Side by Side project, offers a fantastic opportunity for people with Dementia to continue to enjoy various social activities and hobbies which they may have otherwise found impossible to do unsupported.
As a volunteer befriender aged 18+, you will support people with Dementia in the local community and their homes within the Cardiff area to continue with their various pastimes. In doing so, you will contribute to them living well with Dementia.
The primary role of a befriender is to offer informal support by providing a social contact to help to reduce the social isolation experienced by people with Dementia.
Travel expenses are reimbursed. Full training is provided. The minimum time commitment is a few hours per week, negotiable with the organisation.
An informal discussion, references and a disclosure and barring check will be required. Ref 500
