Wellbeing Café Befriender

Our Community Wellbeing Café will launch later this year in the newly refurbished Studio at Glusburn Community & Arts Centre. Working with Pioneer Projects, and supported by funding from Stronger Communities and the National Lottery Communities Fund, our aim is to create a friendly and welcoming environment open to all, particularly suitable for those facing social isolation or issues with mental health. Within these relaxed groups, we will offer keyworker-led creative sessions and activities.


Can you help? We’re looking for individuals who can befriend participants and support them with creative activities. We'd like to hear from people who are good listeners, good at starting conversations, happy to partake in activities as well as helping with clearing up at the end of the session. Previous experience is not essential, support and training will be given.


The Café will run on Monday mornings from 10 am until 12 noon. We will operate a flexible rota, so you won’t have to commit to helping every week and we can accommodate your other commitments. 


Getting involved can be great fun and very rewarding. If you are friendly, caring and enjoy meeting new people, then please get in touch.
