Queensferry Churches Care in the Community welcomes you to our website where you can find out about our range of services, how you might volunteer or support us in some other way - as well as details of our upcoming events.
We were established in 1993 as a registered charity.

This includes supporting people in South Queensferry, Ratho, Ratho Station, Dalmeny, Newbridge and Kirkliston.

I really look forward to visiting the Haven and enjoy seeing all of the familiar faces. I am really glad I decided to volunteer as I have learnt so much and met lots of different people who have shared their experiences and knowledge with me.
What I enjoy most about my role as a befriender is just being a mate to my befriendee, I love listening to all the old tales of good and bad times from the past, sometimes it may be as simple as going for a walk with them or just a wee cup of tea and a chat, looking at photos new and old can be very rewarding for my befriendee and for me, and of course talking about the rivalry between the two footie teams in Edinburgh!
