Befrienders are needed

Could you spare a couple of hours a week to volunteer as a befriender?

We are looking for volunteer befrienders to support people living with the early stages of dementia in the Stirling Council area (with particular need in rural villages such as Drymen). We match befrienders with people who have similar interests so they can be encouraged to pursue loved hobbies or supported so they can build the confidence they need to take up new hobbies. This might be going out for coffee, going to music events, walking or even just visiting someone in their home to keep them company for two hours per week. If you are interested in being a Volunteer Befriender please call Gisele on 07809 471902 or email gisele@townbreakstirling.org.

All volunteers are PVG checked and out of pocket expenses are paid.
