VISITING FRIENDS SCIO
Visiting Friends provides volunteer befrienders for any adult in Helensburgh and Lomond who might be socially isolated or lonely.
Clients are carefully matched with one volunteer who will make a weekly visit or telephone call. The friends can go out for a coffee, stay in and chat or perhaps even go for a drive if the volunteer is able to do this.
Visiting Friends also normally holds regular coffee mornings for the friends throughout the year and ensures that issues like transport are addressed to ensure that the client can attend.
Information for volunteers
Visiting Friends is a small friendly charity that knows that volunteers are at the heart of what we do! Volunteers are referenced and PVG checked.
We meet with all volunteers to discuss their expectations and preferences for volunteering with us. We provide training and ongoing regular support.
We also normally hold volunteer social events throughout the year.
(Some expenses can be reimbursed and this would be discussed when we meet with a potential volunteer. )
