Welcome to our Website.
Monifieth Befriending Scheme is a registered charity, funded by Integration Care Fund and donations. Our Scheme has been running successfully in Monifieth since 2000, providing a growing befriending service to socially isolated older people, bereaved people of any age and people in care homes.
Our trained volunteers provide one-to-one quality time to their clients that is often not otherwise available. Our scheme also holds regular social events throughout the year allowing clients and volunteers to meet up and enjoy social activities together.
‘Bodies Alive’ (our seated exercise, strength and better balance class) is held weekly at 2pm in the Health Education Room at the Health Centre (turn right when you enter the health centre, past the large notice board and the room is located to the left). The class is open to clients, volunteers and members of the local community. Participants are asked to contribute £2.50 each week and refreshments will be provided after the class. Please come along and join in the fun or contact Pauline for more details.
We are delighted to report that we have been awarded 5 years part funding from the Big Lottery Fund from 1st April 2017 and a donation from Lloyds TSB Foundation to help fund our befriending service.
