Community Buddy scheme to be piloted in the Forest

A pilot Community Buddy scheme is being run throughout the Forest by Community First New Forest.

The scheme will be providing a volunteer buddy service for young people with additional needs or disability. A Community Buddy is a trained volunteer who will accompany a young person to partake in an activity they like. The volunteer buddy's role is to act as a friend or mentor to enable the young person to enjoy the community more independently. No personal care is involved. There is a small charge to the families using this scheme.

Jacqui Missen, Buddy Co-ordinator at Community First New Forest, is keen to recruit volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. She explains, "Wherever possible Community First New Forest will match volunteers with a young person with similar interests however there are opportunities for new interests and hobbies to be pursued from both sides." Community First New Forest will provide in-house training and a CRB check will need to be undertaken before commencing the role. Expenses will be provided for travel and activities.

If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a 'Community Buddy' please contact Jacqui Missen, Buddy Co-ordinator at Community First New Forest, on 07508 401843 or email
