Make a difference for a mentally vulnerable citizen, we need you.

Would you like to help make everyday life better for mentally vulnerable people? Are you caring and interested in giving, sharing and receiving life stories from another person?

Help us help citizens with mental illness break the isolation. Citizens often feel lonely and in a vulnerable life situation without a social network. At 'Sind og Sår' vulnerability they are matched with volunteer visiting friends who likes to talk, listen and accommodate.

As a visiting friend, you fill an important space in another person's life. You become a confidential conversation partner, and together you can get new experiences, go to a museum, cafe or eat together.

As a visiting friend you get a lot again

  • The joy of making a big difference to another person who needs you.
  • You get a new friendship and exciting new experiences and stories.
  • You become part of a community with other volunteers who are passionate about helping vulnerable citizens like you.
  • You get to participate in an Introduction course, continuing education, continuous sparring and ongoing supervision by a psychologist or psychotherapist.

We are looking for you, someone who:

  • Wishto help vulnerable and lonely citizens get a better everyday life
  • Have personal profits to be something for another person
  • Meet the visitors at eye level
  • Is good at listening
  • Have the opportunity to spend 4-5 hours a month being the visiting friend

How are you matched?
As a volunteer you will be matched with a visitor who lives near you and who is considered fit for you. The contact is then handled independently between you and your visitor recipient, and you form your own self-interest according to common interests and wishes.

Disability or disability

If you live with a disability, illness or disability, we will try to match you to fit your needs.

We are looking forward to hear from you!

Do not hesitate to contact us for more information about the activity or an informal talk about the possibilities.

Many greetings
