Independent visitor scheme

An independent visitor is a befriender, who visits a child or young person generally at least once a month.

The scheme aims to help children and young people who are looked after by Hammersmith & Fulham and have little or no contact with their birth family.

The visitor is someone that the young person hopefully will build a trusting relationship with. A visitor will also make time to visit children and young people and there is also scope to arrange an activity out. The child/young person can also ask his/her visitor to support them at their review meetings if they wish.

If you know a child or young person who would benefit from an independent visitor or if you want to give some time and volunteer yourself please contact yasmin.jeelani@lbhf.gov.uk at the Independent Visitor Scheme or speak to a social worker.
