Volunteers will be trained and supported by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation and will also receive a contribution to their out of pocket expenses. You must be 18 or over and commit to the programme once a week for six months and no longer than 18 months. (In some exceptions shorter periods of volunteering may be arranged.)
