Are you able to commit to befriending a young person? Are you reliable, enthusiastic, confident and non-judgemental? Do you have a fun, positive attitude, good communication skills, and a good sense of humour?
The Friends 4 U Scheme offers friendship and support to young people between 7 and 18 years of age who are involved with Cardiff’s children’s services.
The scheme allows volunteers to give young people the chance to experience a wide range of activities such as sports and leisure with the hope that they will find something they enjoy.
Volunteers spend a few hours with their young person every week or fortnightly depending on what’s convenient. Some meet in the evenings, others at weekends.
