*New date for next Befriending Forum* – 7 September, 2-4pm

Primary interest
Voluntary sector

The next Befriending Forum will now take place on Wednesday 7 September, 2-4pm in a change to the previously advertised date and time.

Book your free place via Eventbrite. Topics for discussion at this forum – based on feedback from the previous event in June – will include ways of collaborative working, outcomes and impact for volunteers, and peer befriending. The forum will be useful for anyone who runs a befriending scheme in the Reading area or is interested in finding out more about befriending and making connections with other local organisations.

In the meantime, check out the revamped Ready Friends website. There are new articles showcasing the brilliant work done by Engage Befriending and Age UK Reading, with more profiles of volunteer befrienders and organisations appearing soon. If would like your organisation or volunteers to feature, please get in touch at ready.friends@rva.org.uk.
