To help service users with longer term emotional needs, or to help those who have been supported through higher level needs reach independence, we have developed a mentoring/befriending service. This service is provided by a team volunteers trained by us.

What is mentoring and befriending?

A voluntary, mutually beneficial and purposeful relationship in which an individual gives time to support another to enable them to make changes in their life.

Mentoring and befriending makes a real difference to people who find themselves struggling, often at a time of change, and find that they need the dedicated support of another person to help them navigate their way through. It covers a range of supportive and purposeful activity involving the development of a relationship in which one person, who is not family or a close friend, gives time to support and encourage another.

We run our mentoring and befriending service as the Buddy Scheme - currently only running in Wiltshire. For more information, visit the Buddy Scheme web page.
