The Royal Air Forces Association is a registered welfare charity that provides welfare support to Serving and Ex-Serving RAF personnel and their families.
The RAF Association is always looking for people to join us as a volunteer, and we extend this invitation to you as we are urgently looking for individuals to volunteer as Befrienders in your area.
What is a Befriender volunteer?
The Befriender role is at the heart of the RAF Association’s objectives in delivering welfare support to members of the RAF family requiring it.
The aim of the Befriender role is to help alleviate isolation and loneliness, by giving time to listen to people either in person or over the phone and to encourage communication on a shared interest or topic, and to ensure that they remain part of the community and feel socially connected.
The role of a Befriender is varied and could involve helping out with practical tasks such as driving someone to a doctor’s appointment, it could simply involve a cup of tea and a chat or it could be to accompany them to their first meeting of an interest group in their community.
If you would like to get involved we would be delighted to welcome you to the team. To find out more, please get in touch, or visit: www.rafa.org.uk/volunteer
