Be a Volunteer Befriender

We are actively recruiting our next batch of Volunteer Befrienders to start training with us later in the year.  If you have a child or young person with Down Syndrome and live in Dorset, Somerset, North Somerset or Bristol, this amazing opportunity might just be for you.

As we welcome more and more families into Ups and Downs Southwest, as well as the specific support our Family Support Workers offer, parents really value being offered time, understanding, practical and emotional support from others who have that first-hand experience. If you can offer 2-3 hours a week to work alongside another family, please click on the link to learn more about the role and download an application form.  Training starts later in the year.

If you want to discuss this role further please contact us on 01278 691100 or email info@upsanddowns.net

An opportunity to use your valuable experience to help make a real difference to the lives of children and young people and their families whilst gaining valuable skills and knowledge in supported services.
