Female Volunteers needed to Join New Befriending Service – Volunteer Open Day 20th February

Swan Women’s Centre has a new volunteering opportunity in our newly established Befriending Service. Swan Womens Centre have spent almost 30 years supporting women to achieve mental well-being and providing services for women who experience anxiety, depression, stress or mental health issues.

Our new befriending service is funded by the Steve Morgan Foundation. Swan have identified that women using our existing services often struggle to attend appointments, socialise, go shopping and attend meetings. This can hugely affect their emotional, physical and financial wellbeing.

We aim to help women over 18 years old in Sefton who have become lonely or isolated due to barriers caused by their mental health and emotional wellbeing through regular visits and support from our volunteers. Swan Womens Centre Befriending Volunteers will support women in Sefton who are unable to fully engage in their community and who would like to take steps towards making steps back into their community.

We are looking for female volunteers from Merseyside who are:

Caring
Non-judgemental
Respectful
Good listeners skills
Reliable Positive communicators
Able to maintain confidentiality

Each volunteer will be in regular contact with the woman they support. We offer full support and supervision as well as training to enable volunteers to build confidence and focus on their own personal development.

We have an open evening for potential volunteers on Tuesday 20th February from starting at 6pm for volunteer to come and ask more information

For more information call Emma Seasman on; 0151 9333293
or alternatively you can contact the Swan Centre via email; vbc@swanwomenscentre.org
