Become a buddy to a disabled person in the London Borough of Lewisham. Our buddies support disabled people on the telephone, via video or face-to-face. Our primary goal is to help disabled people enjoy social activities such as going for a walk, meeting for a coffee or attending their favourite culture or sporting event to residents in the London Borough of Lewisham.
Due to the nature of the role, we ask for an ideal commitment of 30 minutes per week, which could increase subject to discussions between yourself, Buddies for All and the client. The role is flexible, and you can volunteer evenings and weekends.
All volunteer buddies must have an existing DBS check or be willing to undertake a DBS check before volunteering with Buddies for All. We will support you with the DBS check if your application is successful.
We are particularly looking for male buddies who can support male clients with learning disabilities to access their favourite activities however, applications from across the community are encouraged.
Volunteers will travel across the borough and travel expenses will be reimbursed.
You can read more about what's involved in becoming a buddy below.
Please complete the application form after which time you will be invited for an informal interview.
