Children and young people are referred to our One-to-One Befriending Service because they face challenges in life or might be lonely. Our referral form can be accessed below. Children are matched with a volunteer befriender who shares the same interest as them and will listen to their problems.
“Everyone needs other people, but not everyone has someone. For people who become isolated because of ill health, disability or social disadvantage, being matched with a befriender often fills a big gap” Befriending Networks Scotland (Website, 01, 06, 18)
