Could you volunteer as a Powys Befriender?

We have a range of volunteering opportunities available for caring individuals who can spare an hour or so each week to support our clients, including:

  • Telephone or video calls
  • Exchanging letters/emails
  • Face to face visits
  • Attending community activities or online groups

Help us make a difference today.

PAVO’s Powys Befriending Service supports people over the age of 50 living in Powys, to help maintain their independence, build confidence, develop their social networks and reconnect with activities in the community or with a friendly cuppa and chat in their own home.

As a volunteer you could …

  • Help reduce loneliness and social isolation for an older person 
  • Improve your own confidence
  • Learn new skills
  • Extend your social network

Full training and ongoing support will be provided.

Relevant volunteering expenses can be reimbursed.

Contact us for an informal chat to find out how

you can make a real difference to a lonely, older person’s life.
