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.
This has really helped me to understand what's good and bad in a relationship and that I am equal to my partner. It has also given me a chance and space to talk openly without feeling judged.
