I very much enjoy being a volunteer for ELF in my role as a befriender which I find very enjoyable and rewarding. The paperwork is extremely minimal and very easy. This makes it possible for all the time you volunteer to be spent with the person with whom you are matched. Sue, the volunteer co-ordinator carefully matches the volunteer with the patient / client and she is always available to offer support should you need it.
I feel ELF really appreciates its volunteers, spends all the time necessary to help you feel confident in the role and are flexible and caring. This makes it possible to fit being a volunteer easily into your everyday life.
