Appeal launched for more ‘befrienders’

Volunteers are urgently needed to become a ‘befriender’ for children and young people.

Expenses, training and full ongoing support will be provided.

The scheme provides befrienders for young people aged between eight and 18 years.

The scheme has been in existence for 10 years and currently has around 25 approved befrienders.

For more information call Sally O’Donnell from East Dunbartonshire Council’s Befriending Scheme on 0141 777 3000 or 07901510105.

Training starts in August/September.
