Family Friend volunteers needed

4th May 2021, 3:03pm | By Shirley Baxter |

Safe Families exists to create relationship and connection because everyone deserves to belong.  Family friends work directly with families to provide friendship, encouragement and support so that parents feel less isolated. It might be as simple as being a listening ear over a coffee, giving simple advice and practical support or taking the children to the park for a couple of hours.
Volunteers are given full training and have the support of our local team throughout their volunteering. They usually connect with the family once a week or once a fortnight for around six months.
