Village Hub Befrienders Program
Befriending is a structured relationship between a befriender and a ‘befriendee’. Befriending relationships aim to be non-judgemental, supportive of the ‘befriendee’ and confidential.
The Befriender coordinator has trained and supports a group of older GLBTI volunteers to provide a befriending service to vulnerable older GLBTI people. Older GLBTI people can be referred by organisations or self-refer and they will be matched to an appropriate peer GLBTI person. Email : email@example.com
