At the moment we are in urgent need of:
Some of those in contact with us are not able to participate in our social activities because of physical or mental health issues. Where a one-to-one link better serves someone’s needs, volunteers act as Befrienders, meeting with their Befriendee on a regular (usually fortnightly) basis. This may involve home visiting, or sharing an activity e.g. walk, cinema trip, coffee etc.
The minimum time commitment is one hour per fortnight for a year.
Providing transport to our regular socials is a vital part of the work of Archway. Some of our friends are dependent on us for transport because of physical or mental health issues. Without it they would be unable to attend the socials, which for many is a real highlight of their week. No need to drive every week, fortnightly would still make a difference.
If you would like to support our work, but are not able to make a regular commitment as a befriender or driver, why not try your hand at fundraising? If you are interested in organising a fundraising activity for Archway, would like to do take part in a sponsored event or would like to know more about how you can be involved, then please do email us.
