Jewish Care Scotland

Jewish Care Scotland’s befriending service supports individuals to re-engage with their community and build supportive relationships. In doing so we hope to reduce feelings of loneliness, isolation and social exclusion.

Clients are supported to identify what is important to them and are matched with a volunteer befriender who will support them as they progress towards their goal.

This opportunity offers great scope for both the befriender and the befriendee to engage in new activities, meet new people and learn new skills.
