Be Our Buddy

Be Our Buddy (BOB) a service of Voluntary Action within Kent is a community based service supporting young people across Kent who have a mild/moderate disability or a social communication issue.  These young people are aged between 8 and 18 and could be missing out on extracurricular social activities.  

BOB recruits volunteer buddies to work with young people and help them access mainstream activities they are interested in, such as sporting activities, Brownies, cubs, dance, art and drama classes etc. 

Buddying is about building a relationship which can last between 6 months – 1yr depending upon the needs of the young person, and focuses on empowering the young person to attend social activities on their own, reducing their social isolation and improving their confidence. 

The volunteers can make a real difference to the life of a young person, who just needs a helping hand from someone who is interested in them, can share new experiences with the chance to have fun!
