Befriending

Bexley Moorings Project offers support to young people between the age of 10 and 15 years who are isolated and vulnerable and could benefit from a positive adult role model.  This project is aimed at early intervention and those who are willing to engage.  The service is supported by volunteers who meet the young person for a few hours a week to offer the provision detailed below.

One to one personalised intensive befriending interventions consisting of listening support, positive role modelling and behaviour management.

    Based on a time limited, solution focussed model, with measurable objectives

Flexibility will remain for those who require longer intervention but a four month intervention will be the norm. The volunteers are supported by a member of the staff team through supervision.
