Community Befriending

Do you want to give back to your community and become a Community Befriender?

 

We are looking for good communicators to join our Community Befriending team to work in the Gravesend, Dartford, Swanley and surrounding areas.

 

You will be visiting patients, carers or bereaved families in a community setting.

 

This may include participating in their hobbies, playing games, going out for a walk or coffee or just chatting with them in their home.

 

We would like a regular commitment either weekly or fortnightly but various days, times and locations are available.

 

A DBS check will be required.

 

If visiting someone not local to you, you must drive and have your own transport and you will be required to produce your driving and car documents annually to be seen by a member of staff. You will be able to claim mileage or fares for visits.
