Our befriending services help to reduce loneliness and isolation, by matching people with a trained volunteer. Befriending is confidential, and helps to build confidence and self esteem over time. Regular social contact helps people create a greater sense of belonging in their local communities.

Befrienders Highland offer befriending for people with experience of mental ill health, or memory loss, and also support unpaid adult carers. Each of these life experiences can lead to social isolation and loneliness.
