Monifieth ​befrienders

A befriending service for people over 60 who live in monifieth, Scotland

who we are

Established in 2000 we match volunteer befrienders with older isolated people in Monifieth.

one to one befriending

Anyone can refer a Monifieth resident for our service (you’ll find our referral form below). Apart from one to one befriending, we ​have a number of regular events going on throughout the year: seasonal afternoon teas, fish & chip lunch, Monday Lunches, ​Men’s Brunch Group, monthly film afternoon, summer bus trip, and a knitting group

intergenerational befriending

We have been working with Monifieth High School for over six years now, recruiting sixth year pupils to ​become Befrienders, who are trained and matched in the same way as our adults.

Although the visits are done in pairs and are mostly in term time, there are those who have formed strong ​friendships, visiting during their holidays, and some who have kept in contact long after leaving school.
