Support needed for single-parent families

facebook Share on Facebook

Are you be able to spare an hour or two a week to provide emotional support to single parents and their families? Guardian Angels is a charity which supports single parents and their families and a very important part of the help they offer is mentoring, to provide a ‘friend’ who is available to listen to members’ problems, provide support and refer them to other specialist services if necessary.

New members joining the charity, which operates mainly in the north of the Costa Blanca, are assigned to a volunteer mentor, who keeps in touch and whom they can contact whenever they feel the need, either for a chat on the phone, via social media, messaging or a face-to-face meeting over a coffee, to discuss any problems they have on an informal but completely confidential basis. The mentor’s role is listening, befriending, supporting and referring.

Maybe you have been a single parent yourself or can empathise with their situation, living here in Spain, often without the support of their families, or if you are a good listener and have an hour or two a week to spare, please contact Gill Somers on 655 415 003 for an informal chat. You can find out more about Guardian Angels on their website www.guardian-angels.es.

We are also looking for enthusiastic people to join our committee, to help organise fund raising events. Also, if you have an accounting background, we are also looking for a Treasurer. Please contact Gill on 655 415 003 for an informal chat.
