Description

Wellbeing Scotland is a voluntary organisation with services across Scotland. We provide a wide range of holistic services for individuals and families whose life experiences have impacted negatively on their wellbeing. Since 1994 we have offered client centred, holistic, trauma informed therapeutic services and have specialised in abuse and trauma work. We work with both children and adults.

Due to the Covid 19 crisis our services have never been more needed, and we are currently in urgent need of Volunteer Befrienders in all areas.

Do you or anyone you know have a few hours a week to spare to be listening ear to someone who is currently needing a friendly chat? At this time, our befrienders will work remotely by telephone or video calling. No experience necessary(although being a good listener would be an advantage) as training will be provided to help you with this role, and you will be appointed a supervisor for ongoing support. All equipment will also be provided and expenses for out of pocket costs will be reimbursed.

Please contact Lorna on 07806444390 or Lorna@wellbeingscotland.org for further info or to request an application pack.
