Befriending Project Toolkit

Posted by: Jenny Carter on September,21st,2017

Have you thought about starting your own Befriending Project?

Volunteer Centre Haringey in conjunction with the Markfield Project has developed a Befriending Toolkit aimed at Haringey organisations wanting to develop, launch and manage their own befriending scheme. 

The Toolkit focuses on…

  • Identifying the beneficiaries and need for your own project
  • Planning
  • Project Safety
  • How to recruit volunteer befrienders
  • Training and induction for your new befrienders
  • Matching Befrienders to Beneficiaries
  • Monitoring your project for success
