Bracknell Forest Befriending Scheme
Whether you are looking to return to work, have retired and would like to spend your time carrying out a fulfilling and rewarding role, or would just like to meet new people, becoming a Befriender is one of the easiest ways to get involved and help with your community. There are many elderly and vulnerable people in Bracknell Forest, who are unable to get out due to frailty, and mobility. Being isolated can compound feelings of depression and loneliness, and having someone to talk to because they care and want to help voluntarily, can make a huge difference to someone who feels they have no one to turn to or talk to about their problems.
Volunteering as a Befriender is a great way to gain experience if you are looking into a career in care. We cover the cost of an Enhanced Criminal Record
Bureau Check, and also provide training including Level 1 Safeguarding Adults for free.
If you are caring and compassionate and have 1 or 2 hours a week spare to offer friendship to someone in need of company, or would like to find out about other volunteering roles in the Bracknell Borough call
Gemma Frewin on 01344 304404.
Would you like to give something back to your community and gain new skills and friends along the way?

Have you ever wondered what singing can do for you? It’s now widely known that singing is beneficial to your health and gives you the ‘feel good factor’. It has a positive effect on the mind, body and soul; when you sing the body releases endorphins which help reduce stress and lift the spirit.
At Sing for Fun you can get all the benefits of singing in a friendly, fun environment. No experience is necessary only enthusiasm. You will receive tips on vocal technique, tuning and projection. No one has to sing by themselves and the emphasis is placed on the overall sound with everyone blending together in harmony.
