The Living Well Project

The Living Well Project Befriending Service is based in Newhills, Aberdeen. We offer a befriending service for people in the Newhills/Bucksburn/Dyce/Bridge of Don/Kingswells areas for anyone aged 65 or over, who is socially isolated or lonely. Trained volunteer befrienders are matched with those referred and weekly visits/outings take place.

Referrals may be made by the health and social care sectors or families. People may also self-refer.

Information for volunteers

Our volunteers visit older people, who are socially isolated and lonely, in their own homes. Volunteers usually visit either weekly or fortnightly for about an hour. The visits offer friendship and companionship, often with a cuppa, perhaps a game or a short outing. All our volunteers receive regular training and support.
