Training is a vital element of our support to churches with befriending schemes. We provide regular face to face and virtual training courses and workshops to equip churches in these vital ministries.

Our Webinars, Training Courses and supporting resources cover every aspect of a project from initially deciding whether to start a scheme, right through to being fully operational. This includes content for the church leadership, the scheme coordinator and the volunteer befrienders.

Training Resources and Courses for scheme Coordinators, Volunteers and Affiliates

Our full training courses are intended for Linking Lives UK and Two’s Company befriending schemes and affiliate organisations.

Most of these resources are password protected. Passwords are issued after Induction Training. Click here to book an Induction Session, or to enter if you already have a password.

“Just a big ‘Thank you’ for such an informative and inspiring webinar. As well as hearing about the great work of Linking Lives, and how that Charity is set up to inform and resource Churches, it was great to meet up with likeminded Christians in the Cambridge area. Thank you for facilitating all this …. such potential for impacting for good!!” – Webinar Attendee
