Womankind (Bristol Women's Therapy Centre) is looking for Befrienders to support women with mental health needs, including depression and anxiety. 

We are looking for volunteers who are able to spend up to 3 hours each week supporting a woman. Women can often become very isolated when they have been ill and we aim to help women gain in confidence and self-esteem and to alleviate isolation by building up social support networks. 

The volunteer’s role will be to offer ordinary friendship and support within guidelines that will be agreed by both parties. Volunteers will receive training sessions before they are introduced to the woman that they will be working with (next training sessions start in autumn 2016). You must be 21 or over to apply for this position.
