Quotes from Volunteers
“I feel the scheme is rewarding for both myself and my client.”“I believe the value of befriending is confirmed in an organisation such as this which clearly benefits people who are socially isolated, who spend many long hours alone in their homes.”

Our volunteer ages range from late teens to over 90 and come from all walks of life. Some live in Monifieth, some don’t.

Our volunteers are reference checked, are members of the PVG scheme and understand the importance of confidentiality.

Ongoing support and supervision is given throughout the befriending relationship Volunteers have the opportunity to attend our monthly volunteer meetings where they meet up with the Co-ordinators and other volunteers for coffee and a chat. From time to time, these sessions are used for additional training, or for visits from speakers from other organisations within the care community.

Volunteers are reimbursed for any out of pocket expenses incurred.
