With the work of Adavu expanding as we support more adult survivors of slavery, we are looking to develop a team of Volunteer Befrienders to offer practical and social support to our clients.
Befrienders should be reliable, approachable and have good interpersonal skills. Being a Volunteer Befriender for Adavu might involve:
- Accompanying clients to specific appointments, e.g., to register with a new GP.
- Assisting the client with practical tasks; e.g., finding local shops
- Advocacy work; e.g. a phone call on behalf of the client if a housing repair issue arises.
- Social support; friendship and social opportunities, e.g. a visit to a local park, or cultural event
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to apply.
