Befriending Volunteer

Volunteer Befrienders are there to help those who sign up to the Befriending Service to feel more connected and less lonely. Befriending clients are most likely to be CRPS patients themselves, but the service is also open to friends, family and caregivers as well. The service aims to support anyone who is affected by this condition.

As a befriending volunteer, your role will involve a 40-minute call per client per week at a mutually agreed time, for up to 12 weeks or calls (depending on any holidays or sickness). Calls can take place either by telephone or on Zoom video, as per the client’s preferences. In addition to the weekly call, volunteer befrienders are to update and maintain the Charity’s CRM database and ensure that client records are up-to-date.

A befriender should encourage communication and confidence whilst practising empathy and understanding. It is crucial to have good listening skills and have the ability to withhold judgement. A befriender should support their client with knowledge of CRPS, although befriending calls are not exclusive to the topic of CRPS.
