Building Connections is an online service for young people up to the age of 19, empowering them to find a way through loneliness.

Detailed description

We need someone who wants to make a difference to children's lives by supporting them with their feelings of loneliness. As a volunteer befriender you will explore with a young person their strengths and vulnerabilities, current sources of support, resilience and goals, and steps they can take to help overcome feelings of loneliness.

You'll volunteer from home in a private space, after your initial training you will support young people over 11 weekly sessions following the 7-stage practice model to help the young person develop skills to manage their emotions around loneliness, build their confidence, self-esteem and support them to find new ways to cope.
