Lead Scotland - Befriending Young Carers

We enable young people aged 12 to 18 who have caring role at home in Fife to experience the same opportunities as their peers. Our fantastic Lead Scotland Volunteer Befriender’s can help provide support to young people that can improve their confidence and connection with their community.

The service aims to be flexible and as such will operate on a case by case basis, however it is anticipated that the support will be for up to 2 hours per week for a duration of up to 1 year.

Information for volunteers

We are always looking for more volunteers to support our projects. We have a range of roles that can suit your available time and experience. We can provide training, out of pocket expenses and opportunities to our volunteers which are as fulfilling as they are rewarding.
