Launch of The Buddy Scheme

It was a pleasure to be invited to the launch of The Buddy Scheme today at St Andrew's Church in Cobham as part of my role as Social Committee Member at Epsom and Ewell Borough Council.

The Buddy Scheme is an initiative to enable people with learning difficulties to become volunteers and I was lucky enough to be at the launch of this initiative which will be rolled out in Cobham, Dorking, Epsom, Esher and Walton on Thames.

A trained Buddy Mentor offers volunteers :

  • Support attending interviews and visits to voluntary placements
  • Ongoing support in a voluntary role
  • Travel training
