SVC’s new Digital Befriending project works with both young carers, and young people with a learning and/or physical disability. The project involves volunteers being matched with a young person and contacting them a few times a week via phone call or video call. This can involve simply having a chat with them as well as playing games over video call or undertaking other activities such as cooking/baking together, watching films, dancing, playing online games, etc. This scheme aims to support the young people by providing a befriending service in order to combat their feelings of loneliness, isolation and boredom during this time, as well as again providing valuable periods of respite for parents/guardians.
