QCCC befriending service is a highly valued and much appreciated service that could not exist without volunteers.

Befriending provides the ideal opportunity to volunteer at a time that suits you.  Many of our befrienders work full time and visit early evening or have school age children and arrange their visit during school hours.A commitment of 1-2 hours per week or fortnight can have a huge impact on an older persons’ life by reducing social isolation and increased self- esteem and confidence through the knowledge that someone is choosing to visit them.No previous experience is required and as a volunteer befriender you would receive comprehensive induction training, on-going support and the opportunity to meet other befrienders at training or social events.The waiting list for volunteer befrienders continues to grow so if you are age 18+ and can spare a couple of hours please contact Lorna Russell for more information on 0131 331 5570.
