Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Befriending is, quite simply, a positive way
for volunteer adults to support children in their own communities. It is an opportunity for an adult and child
to spend quality time together on a regular basis.
that befriending works.
We’re proud to say Befrienders has been working in Argyll and Bute for over 30 years and during that time we have seen many successful befriending
relationships. The many benefits of
befriending include raised self-esteem and self confidence. Most importantly, as our many volunteer
befrienders in Argyll will tell you –
Befriending is Fun.
Do get in
touch if you would like to volunteer.
Befrienders can be any age (over 17), can be single or in a relationship. Befrienders don’t need to be parents, in
employment or have qualifications. We
would like to hear from you if you have a sense of humour, commitment, patience
and enjoy spending time in the company of young people.
