Aberdeen Linking Lives Befriending Service

Type of initiative funded: Befriending


Funding awarded: £10284


Project description:

Our model of operation has been running successfully since 2019. The core focus has traditionally been arranging for volunteers to visit older people (Link Friends) in their own homes for 1-2 hours, or call them on phone once a week. These visits often become a lifeline with many reporting that it has transformed their lives.
