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 are volunteers who commit to visiting or phoning one of our clients once a week; to provide companionship, friendly chat and a listening ear during a difficult time.

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 nice charity to be involved in and volunteers tend to stay with us over 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 sense of well being, we would love you to join our community.
