Befriending is all about building a friendship with someone you can trust to spend time with you or take you out somewhere fun, giving you the independence and opportunities to do activities you like. Befrienders meet the young person as often as weekly or fortnightly and plan an activity that they share or enjoy. Such as:
● Building friendships
● Going to the cinema
● Going out for food
● Playing and watching sports
● Playing video games and board games
Befriending is suitable for a child or young person with a disability who:
● Are aged 5-18 years old and living in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and surrounding areas.
● Need or would benefit from 1:1 support to achieve more independence from their primary carers and take part in social and leisure activities.
● Have a parent or carer who would benefit from a short break.
● Would ideally like a befriender for between 2-4 hours on a regular basis such as weekly or fortnightly.

SERVICES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE EXCLUDED FROM EDUCATIONAL SERVICES.
This programme is not curriculum based or academically based and is not an alternative education package but is a productive use of children/young people’s ‘school time.’ Re-integration into school is seen as the aim for every child on the programme and assistance in this process is an integral part of the service provided.
The programme embraces the philosophy of school, with systems and boundaries separate to those of the children/young people’s living situation, whilst working in close co-operation with carers.
Each child/young person will have an individually tailored programme timetable. Topics of interest are found for children/young people and learning opportunities are created around these.
Written monthly feedback will be provided for each child/young person.
We encourage open communication between carers and programme workers and are happy to respond to requests to attend meetings etc. in the best interest of the child/young person.
All programmes will be reviewed regularly at intervals decided at the outset.
