A volunteer co-ordinator and member from the Befriending Scheme visited Samuel Ward Academy’s sixth form health and social care class to inform them of its work.
Ruth Barton and member Jenni Devlin were there to promote its work and to try and recruit more volunteers.
The Befriending Scheme provides friendship and learning opportunities for vulnerable adults (over 16), including those with mental health needs and learning disabilities.
The scheme’s Haverhill branch meet every Friday at the Chalkstone Community Centre between 10am and 3pm.
