Volunteer Centre East Lothian

Engage Befriending is a project aiming to support young people aged 8 - 14 years, who live in East Lothian.
We hope to offer young people a befriender to meet with once a week for about 3 hours over a 6 month period.
Together with a befriender, the young person can feel supported to do things they enjoy, have fun in their local community, perhaps try new things and sometimes even have a treat day!
