The Friendship Project for Children

We support disadvantaged children in Coventry & Warwickshire, referred to us via Social Services or Local Schools, with regular 121 weekly volunteer visits of 2/3 hours a week helping the child to improve their self esteem, confidence, well being, and to have some fun. Established in 1986 we have helped over 1,000 children. We have a long waiting list of children waiting to be matched, and we are seeking funds to help with recruitment of more volunteers, plus ongoing support of our work.
