East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action, Befriending Service
The aim of the service is to challenge loneliness and social isolation and to improve the quality of life of our clients throughout East Dunbartonshire. We do this by providing a range of befriending services to vulnerable adults who would benefit from companionship and increased interaction with others. The service delivers one to one befriending, group befriending, a telephone service, as well as hosting several social events each year.
Information for volunteers
If you could spare a couple of hours once a fortnight you could make a significant difference to the lives of lonely, socially isolated residents in the East Dunbartonshire area.
The Befriending Service offers a range of volunteering opportunities including one to one befriending, either face to face or by telephone, assisting in one of our group befriending sessions, or as a driver helping to transport individuals to groups or events.
