Befriender

Helping Hands Project (HHP) at Jigsaw4u is looking for a volunteer to befriend individuals and families from the local area, who have experienced domestic abuse. Building a trusting relationship, you will support them to make links within the wider community, to access local services and to attend a variety of appointments.

They ask for a minimum of 2 hours volunteering per week between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. 

Please note that if you are successful with your application and informal interview you will be invited to attend the Helping Hands Project volunteer training. Volunteers for their HHP must be aged 18 yrs and over.
