Independent Visitor Service

Volunteer to befriend and support a young person in care

Who can volunteer

You can volunteer as an Independent Visitor if you are:

  • over 18 years old
  • complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Services) check. We arrange this and pay for it
  • have the skills to befriend, listen to and support a young person
  • can commit to supporting a young person for a few hours every month, for at least 18 months

We are particularly keen to recruit male volunteers and people from under-represented communities. You do not need any specific qualifications, experience, or background to apply.
