BAAS now wishes to recruit volunteers to work as Befrienders to people (18 plus) who have or think they may have an autism spectrum condition.
Being a befriender on behalf of BAAS will require you to work closely with the families of those with an ASC to explore what the befriendee wants in order to achieve their aspirations and maintain a feeling of well being. An important part of the service is to help reduce loneliness and isolation where it exists and to work with families to ensure the enrichment of the lives of the befriendee. Volunteers must have an empathy with those with asc; must have a patient disposition and be flexible to ensure that time spent with befriendee’s is at a time that is mutually convenient to all parties. Volunteers will be expected to spend up to two hours per week and help contribute to the provision of an exciting programme of enrichment for befriendee’s based upon the befriendee’s self identified needs.
Volunteers will be reimbursed out of pocket expenses upon production of valid receipts
Professional training will be provided.
