BeFriend in Bellshill
BeFriend in Bellshill is part of the multi-activity Orbiston Neigbourhood Centre. Our volunteers befriend elderly or disabled members of our communty in Bellshill and surrounding area, who experience loneliness or isolation. We aim, with the willingness of our volunteers, to provide companionship and support, to increase the confidence and self esteem of our befriendees. Our befrienders visit at home, usually weekly. They will spend some time, typically an hour or so with, and talk with their host. Where appropriate they can accompany their friend on short outings to shops etc.
