“Befriending is having someone to talk to when I needed to!”

- Young Person

How would you describe befriending to someone who knows nothing about it?

“I would say it’s a really good opportunity to do things you’ve never done before, become confident around people and get to know the Befriender really well.  I think its excellent.”

- Young Person

They are someone to talk to apart from your family.  They help improve yourself and make you a better person, while having fun.

- Young Person

I’ve become more confident. I’m more open and can go to places on my own now. I had fun!

- Young Person

It has helped me to become more confident and express myself more.  To talk to anybody openly.  I could talk to my Befriender about anything at the same time as having fun.

How would you describe befriending to someone who knows nothing about it?

You get an adult who you can trust, who you can talk to, be listened to, go other places and have fun.

My Befriender has given me more confidence.  He’s helped me control my anger and gave me advice.  Today I will do my best because I know I can!

- Young Person

I’m not as angry as I used to be.  Just going out with my Befriender has helped.

- Young Person

It’s someone who takes you places.  They take care of you, they listen to you and they give you advice.  They give you a break from your family.

I can now stick up for myself, as I now feel more confident.
