Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

Year 3 Awardee

PEACE Expansion Aberdeen

Type of initiative funded: Befriending


Key priority area: Suicide prevention


Funding awarded: £1131


Project description:

The grant will cover some of the costs of expanding our level of support in the Aberdeen area. It will allow us to recruit, equip and train 3 additional volunteers and their dogs. These additional PEACE Teams will then be able to provide canine therapy (the comforting presence of a dog) along with pastoral care (caring, attentive listening) to even more people in the Aberdeen area. Insurance cover is essential for the safe delivery of our service too.
