About the Volunteer Opportunity

The Befriender will be working with a young person who has a Brain Injury.  The volunteer will visit them in their home and take them for a very short walk outside or just have a chat.

This lady is very sociable and enjoys nature, shopping and exercise.

About the Organisation

The Cedar Foundation was set up in 1941 as the Northern Ireland Council for Orthopaedic Development and for over 80 years, they have grown from an organisation dedicated to a single condition to one that focuses on the needs of the individual, whatever their disability. 

They now deliver a range of services that enable people with disabilities, autism and brain injury to get the most out of life and to be fully included in their communities. Their services are centred around the individual needs of each person and are delivered throughout Northern Ireland supporting children and adults to live, work and to engage in their communities. 

Volunteering with Cedar Foundation is a fantastic way to make a real contribution. If you have free time, are motivated and enthusiastic come and help us build an inclusive society for all.

They value diversity and encourage volunteers from all sections of the community.
