Current roles available
The Buddies Project is a parallel service to the main Project which supports young people aged 11-18 years who are socially isolated as a direct result from having additional support needs.
FIND OUT ABOUT THE ROLE OF A BUDDY
The South Ayrshire Befriending Project (SABP) is a small locally run charity based in Ayr, which was established in 1996 when the need for a befriending service for young people with social or emotional difficulties within South Ayrshire was identified. SABP also extends to young people with an additional support need or a diagnosed medical condition through our new Buddies Project.
SABP supports around 60 young people each year through the provision of 1:1 befriending and group activities.
We receive funding from a variety of grant making bodies and trusts as well as private donations and a contribution from the Local Authority.
The Project’s full team consists of three part time Co-ordinators and one Project Assistant who oversee the daily running of SABP. It is managed by a Management Committee of volunteers with different professional backgrounds and their own specific remit within the Project. We also have advisors from the Local Authority, Social Work Department & HR Departments, Police Scotland and the Scottish Children’s Reporter’s Department.
