We run free training courses for those who are interested in becoming a BBN Volunteer Befriender. BBN apologises that it is unable to run a training course this autumn. Our next course will be held next year (2019) and details will be posted here once the details have been confirmed. If you have already expressed an interest in the next course we will contact you again directly.
