A befriender is someone willing to take a few hours out of their week to spend one to one time with a woman who has experienced domestic abuse.
Befrienders empower women to become more independent. Examples of activities that befrienders can explore are:
- Join an art class, college class or an exercise class
- Accompany her for shopping or going for a coffee
- Help find information and advice
- Provide a listening ear when she needs support
