In the last couple of weeks the Project has resumed some befriending activity and a limited number of young people are now meeting up with their befriender whilst adhering to the latest Scottish Government guidance. Meetings are strictly outdoors only, with PPE and social distancing in place, as and when required. We are working to increase the number of young people meeting face to face with their befriender over the coming weeks and each match is being carefully assessed on an individual basis.
We are making good progress but some of our work remains on hold, for example volunteer recruitment, our referral process and making new befriending matches. We eagerly await further easing of the current social distancing restrictions in order that we can restart this work too. If you are interested in volunteering or would like to make a referral please still get in touch with us to discuss this. Our office is closed to visitors but our staff are here and available Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm.
