Befrienders Dublin are looking for Volunteers (over 18) to support adults with Mental Health problems.  Full training is provided. As a befriender you are matched with a befriendee and meet with them on a regular basis (usually once a week). You can go for coffee, go for walks or any other mutually acceptable activity. Volunteer Training takes place in Balbriggan Library, Saturday 10th, 17th and 24th September, 2pm – 4.30pm. Volunteers must attend all Training Days.

If you’re interested, call the office on (01) 838 7184 to request an application form (leave a message if office unattended & we’ll get back to you). You can also fill in the Volunteer application form here on the website). We match males with males & females with females. We try to match people of similar ages. Currently, we are especially short of Volunteers 50 & over. Befriending is a very valuable and rewarding way to volunteer. So, please give it a go!
