Can you spare a few hours a month to befriend a young person in care? If you want to volunteer, have fun and make a real difference in a young person’s life then become a buddy with us.
Do you work with a young person who would benefit from having a buddy? Benefit from having a positive adult role model in their lives who takes them out for fun activities?
An Independent Visitor or Buddy as we call them here in Doncaster, is a trusted and stable befriender who builds a safe and caring relationship with a young person in care over time. The aim of this volunteering role is to be a positive adult role model and provide 1-2-1 time and space for a young person to talk, feel listened to, valued, and have some fun. This consistent friendship helps the young person to build self-esteem, confidence, and resilience.
Would you like a buddy? Someone to talk to, spend time with and do fun activities together?
