mirus is looking for Befrienders in Cardiff and in the Bridgend area to enable the people we support to take part in new activities and become more involved in the community.
We are training volunteers to become Befrienders. Your skills, personality, and interests will be matched appropriately to an individual that has requested a Befriender. Every individual has different needs and interests, so what they require will be determined by their circumstances.
Whether you've got a hobby that you would like to share, a particular interest, or simply love having a chat over a cup of coffee, you could be helping someone achieve a life goal.
As well as looking for one-to-one volunteers to befriend people in the community, we are also looking for volunteers for our established Social Groups (befriending a group of friends that meet weekly)
We are also interested to hear from you if you have other interests and skills you would like to share. All you will need is the desire to help others and a little time to spare.
We are looking for volunteers, aged 18 or over, who are able to give their time, on a weekly or fortnightly basis, preferably for at least 6 months. Training, induction and ongoing support will be provided through a Volunteer Coordinator. This is a voluntary role, however, out-of-pocket expenses - such as travel, entry fees, or light refreshments - can also be provided.
Volunteering at mirus can be a great way to learn new skills, make friends, and it makes you feel good!
If this sound like something you would like to get involved with or for more information, you can contact one of our volunteer coordinators at:
