Our mentoring/befriending scheme is an incredible opportunity to offer 1:1 recovery support to our service users who have experienced domestic abuse or sexual harm. Once the risk has reduced we offer weekly support for 6-9 months to help people come to terms with their experiences and begin to move forwards on their journey. Our volunteers do this through listening, standing alongside and helping people to identify where they would like to go. With excellent training and support this is a meaningful role.
