Befriending Objectives:     

What do you hope the Befriending Service involvement will achieve? Please tick the top three that most apply:

To ensure your child is able to participate and enjoy a range of opportunities during their befriending, we ask that you complete the following health information. Any information that you give about a child’s disabilities or health condition will be used to help volunteers/befriender make befriending more accessible for your child. We recommend that you speak to the befriending coordinator about support and adjustments the service can provide.

Compulsory Field

We sometimes take photos and/or videos during our activities. Please indicate below your preference for the way in which we can use the photos of your child.

Photo/video permissions differ for large scale events (where over 100 participants are present). Consent forms will state clearly if an event is large scale, and will request parent/carer to tell befrienders/Befriending coordinator if they do not wish photos/videos of their child to be taken at the event.
