Kincardine and Deeside Befrienders

Last Call for this training course

Could you make a Difference to an older person in Bervie?

Kincardine and Deeside Befriending are urgently needing more volunteers to help them to cope with the growing demand for befrienders for older people in Inverbervie and surrounding areas.

Befrienders are matched with an older person who is lonely and isolated. They visit them for a cup of tea or coffee or to take them out; usually for a couple of hours in the afternoon every week or fortnight.

The Organisation will be running a training course for new volunteers on Saturday 5th September. Many people like Mary (pictured) are socially isolated and enjoy the company of a befriender.

Anyone who is over 18 is welcome to apply. Having a car to take an older person out would be an advantage. K&D Befriending will provide expenses and support. For more information and an application pack, visit or call 01569 765714.
