Befriending Lewis are delighted to announce that they are now looking to recruit volunteers for their Befriending Service pilot in Harris.

Befriending aims to provide supportive, reliable relationships through volunteer befrienders, to people who would otherwise be socially isolated. The service has been a huge success in Lewis with volunteers giving support to those in their local area who need it.

Can you spare an hour a week to have a chat over a cuppa, introduce some-one to the gym, go for a walk, knit and natter? A small amount of your time can make a huge difference to some-one who feel socially isolated or lacks confidence and is rewarding for both befriender and befriendee. 

Befriender training days have been organised for 29th January, 18th and 25th February, contact Befriending Lewis to attend or just find out more about what's involved: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or call 01851 702632
