BeFriend is a project of Berwickshire Housing Association, and is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. Our volunteers befriend older people in Berwickshire and Kelso, in the Scottish Borders, offering informal companionship to people in their own homes.
We offer face to face befriending, individually or in groups, and telephone befriending.
Information for volunteers
Our volunteers provide a vital connection between our older people and their communities. Join us to help some of the most isolated and vulnerable people in society.
You can help by making phone calls, visiting people, helping out at the groups or providing lifts.
