Become a Buddy Service Volunteer

Can you spare two hours a per week for at least six months to make a difference to a young person’s life? Coventry and Warwickshire Mind is seeking volunteers for its Buddy Service which helps reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness among young people in the community.

What is the Buddy Service?

The Buddy Service is dedicated to ensuring a young person’s self-esteem and confidence will grow and for them to feel comfortable and happy with their social life so they no longer require the Buddy Service. The young person will be matched with a buddy based on their likes and similar interests and will meet regularly with them to take steps in reaching personal goals to become more independent.

The Buddy Service empowers young people to take ownership and look at ways to reduce those feelings of isolation and loneliness. The support can be provided on a 1-1 basis or a small group within the community.
