Making Headway is a new service we are developing, to support those directly affected by ABI who want to access activities of their choice in their communities.


Volunteers in this project will be 'buddies', supporting their befriended user. You will help them to rebuild confidence, develop a new independence, and encourage them to make connections through following their own interests. 


This may be everyday things, such as going out for coffee; engaging with a hobby, activity or social group; using their lived experience to provide support, training or advocacy for others affected by ABI.


You will receive training and ongoing support, the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge for yourself, as well as having the satisfaction of seeing your buddy achieve their goals. 


We are looking for volunteers from all backgrounds and across Somerset who are able to offer time and the commitment to make a difference in someone's life.
