Deaf Action (Online Befriending Service)
Deaf Action, 49 Albany Street, City Of Edinburgh, EH1 3QY
We know how lonely it can feel at any age being at home during the Coronavirus pandemic.
If you or someone you know could do with a friendly face to chat to, our befriending service can help you meet Deaf friends in Scotland with similar interests and suitable communication needs for conversation and companionship during this difficult time.
Not only can the befriender stay in contact through video calls, text messages, and letters.
Deaf BSL users, deafened, deafblind, and hard of hearing all welcome to use our befriending service to meet new friends.
If you don’t have a suitable device to communicate online with our befrienders, we can also provide you with the free loan of a computer tablet as well as training.
