Befriender volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to take part in our Befriending Scheme. The latter started as a response to COVID-19 and our centre's closure. It is a small scale project but some clients have recently come forward wanting to take part. The scheme helps those who are struggling with being alone and feel isolated. Once the volunteer is matched with a client, they will not be able to offer any legal advice or assistance, but they will be someone to chat (over the phone or zoom once to twice a week) to about things that are going on and how they are feeling.

French is required.

If you are interested, please send your CV and a covering letter to Inès.
