We offer a 1-1 befriending service to children and young people.
Time2Share@WECIL is a local charity supporting disabled children, young people and their families across the Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset region. We have been successfully supporting people to access volunteer befriending services and group activities in the area for over 40 years.
Our 1:1 befriending service involves volunteers spending regular time with a young person doing something they both enjoy such as watching a movie, cooking, playing football or going for a walk. Spending just a couple of hours a week with a befriender can make a dramatic difference to the lives of disabled children and the people who care for them. It can enable young people to increase their confidence and independence, develop their life skills, become less isolated, build their own friendships and of course have fun! It also provides parents and families with the chance to have a break from their caring responsibilities.
