Westminster befriending services

Family with young children

Our befriending services

We are offering 4 befriending services with trained volunteers provided to support families referred to the project by either the outreach team or other professionals outside the organisation.

Families are given emotional and/or practical support. Before a volunteer is matched with the family an Outcome Star assessment is completed where clear aims and objectives are agreed with the family. This is reviewed regularly to ensure families are getting the right support and our service is meeting their needs. The FLS team also link families to our activity programmes in the local area.
