South Ayrshire Befriending Project

This Organisation is looking for Volunteers


The South Ayrshire Befriending Project is a local charity which supports socially isolated and excluded young people (aged 8 – 18) across South Ayrshire who have no or limited adult support to access recreational activities and are often affected by other issues such as child protection procedures, drugs/alcohol, mental health problems and disabilities. By providing young people with an adult volunteer for up to 2 years on a 1:1 basis meeting fortnightly and accessing local activities and amenities their confidence and self esteem is increased and they are encouraged to be involved in their local communities. They can also make new friends and develop social skills by attending the regular group activities facilitated by the Project. The project is funded through a variety of grants and trusts.
