FriendBee Befriender

Friendbee is a SEND Befriending Service that matches young people with a paid Befriender to help them access social and leisure activities. We currently support young people up to the age of 25 that have a Special Education Need or Disability (SEND) that impacts their social life, who also live in the London Borough of Richmond or Royal Borough of Kingston.

Our Befrienders are recruited, trained, vetted and employed by Ruils to make finding the right support easier for families. Our service is designed to make long-term and sustainable matches between families and Befrienders. While we help coordinate matches and manage the employment of Befrienders, parents work directly with Befrienders to establish a schedule for sessions.

This is supplemental and part-time work that should accompany another job or studies. We cannot guarantee set hours, although most Befrienders work 2-4 hours per week on average. Minimum rate per hour is the London Living Wage - £10.85. 

To be eligible for this position you must:

  • Live or work within London Borough of Richmond or Royal Borough of Kingston-Upon-Thames 
  • Be 18 years of age
  • Have experience working with children in either a paid or voluntary capacity
  • Have the right to work in the UK
  • Be able to commit to the Befriending role for minimum of 1 year

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and interviews will be set up individually. Download the Application Pack below to apply and return your completed form to
