Hackney Volunteer & Befriending Service

Hackney Volunteer & Befriending Service
 

Overview

The Volunteer & Befriending service is run by Outward and aims to end loneliness and social isolation through matching suitable volunteers to vulnerable people in Hackney. There are a number of ways for volunteers to support vulnerable people – through home visiting, escorting people to medical appointments and accompanying them in the community to activties as well as regular telephone contact.

We welcome everyone who would like to be a volunteer and have a quick and easy induction process to get you started, as well as full support and training whilst you volunteer. We also hold regular volunteer socials and celebrations to say thank you for all of your hard work. It also means you get to make lots of new friends!
