Mentoring and befriending relationships are mutually beneficial with both service users and volunteers amply rewarded personally and socially – obtaining new skills, making friends and having stimulating experiences while making a real contribution to their communities.

STN mentoring and befriending programs can be formal or informal – although to make a real difference mentors must be thoroughly trained, well supervised and fully informed of the legal, ethical and professional protocols.


STN mentoring and befriending meetings are informal yet highly informative discussions essential to building a positive productive team ethic. Share your knowledge and learn from the experiences of others.

Our common ground meetings allow befriending staff and committee members to meet others involved in local befriending projects, to discuss and explore topical issues around befriending and contribute to good practice in befriending at a national level.
