30 - Befriender
When We Need You
From 04/03/2010 onwards
Sycamore Service is dedicated to the needs of the individual child, to encourage positive growth and in all aspects of their development. As a Sycamore Befriender you will be valued as a team member with an important role to play in the child/young person's Plan. To enable you to carry out the valuable work that you do, there will be regular supervision to give an opportunity to discuss your own needs as a Befriender. This could involve either discussion about training needs or a chat about different experiences you have faced.
