Befrienders have introduced the Refocus recovery way of working
We are now well underway with the new Refocus way of working for our friendships and a number of current friendships are happily engaged with it. Friends and volunteers have been coached in goal setting and supporting achievement of Friends' goals and we are delighted to say it is already having a significant impact.
All new referrals are automatically being coached in the new way of working and it has been very well received.
Final staff training takes place on 14 March and then it really will be all systems go. BHL coordinators Sally, Alan and Alison are getting ready to get out and about to Community Mental Health Teams and other organisations soon to let them know about Refocus and how we are working with it in our friendships.
