Befriending

We offer one-to-one support to at-risk young people.

Befriending not only provides the young person with someone to talk to, but also the opportunity for us to address key issues around staying safe, healthy and unhealthy relationships, and informed decision- making. This approach is completely voluntary and fully-led by the young person. We meet with young people on a regular basis either at home, education-provider or in the community.

Some quotes from young people we have worked with…

“I feel able to make better choices now”

“I’ve learnt things I never knew about keeping safe”

“I found the stuff on healthy relationships the most helpful- now I will go more deep and think whether this relationship is good or bad for me”

“I really enjoyed my sessions. I have gained more confidence in myself”

 

In 2016 we worked with 89 young people in Norfolk.

If you have been referred and want to find out if befriending is for you then please contact us.
