Be a buddy for a new Leeds resident #VolunteersWeek

Most people have had experience of feeling new, not knowing where things are or how to get help. Well, here is your opportunity to be a buddy to somebody that is new to the city – to show them things like:

  • where the train and bus stations are
  • visiting museums together
  • exploring different areas of Leeds
  • how to access services like GPs
  • taking up  a hobby together.

We are looking for people who are interested in volunteering a couple of hours each week to help somebody get out and about in Leeds.

MAP+ are organising this buddying project. If you’d like to volunteer or to make a referral, you can contact them on 0113 248 4880.

We can offer you:

  • Free volunteer training over four sessions and support from Touchstone
  • Matching to individuals who will benefit from your experience and skills
  • Travel expenses
