As a Compeer volunteer, you will be matched in a one-to-one friendship with a socially isolated adult living with a mental illness. You will meet together in a public setting and enjoy your planned social activities. Meetings occur on a regular basis, for a period of at least 12 months. This commitment allows you to build an authentic friendship and have a lot of fun in the process. You might enjoy a coffee and chat together, go to a sporting event, have lunch or see a movie, or go to a Compeer Social event. It’s up to the both of you to decide.
