We are a modern 21st century organisation with a 400 year-old history of helping out Scots, and the children of Scots, in London.

And we’re finding that the need for our support has never been greater.

We offer help with job seeking, housing, health, drugs and alcohol, counselling, debt and advocacy advice and services. We also offer befriending, social events and activities so Scots can come together and enjoy life in London a bit more.

Our services are available to Scots living within a 35 mile radius of Charing Cross.

Information for volunteers

Blether Buddies provide a weekly phone call or meet up at and help to help reduce isolation and loneliness through companionship and friendly conversation.

We provide training, ongoing support, out of pocket expenses, social events, newsletters and more. We also run regular meetings so befrienders can come together to share experiences, learn from, and support one another.

ScotsCare is a lovely charity to be involved in and volunteers tend to stay with us for the longer term. If you want to get involved in an enjoyable and rewarding activity and one that could really make a difference to someone's emotional well being, we'd love to hear from you.
