Organisation aims and objectives

Befrienders Highland is a voluntary organisation and charity that provides free one-to-one befriending service for people across the Highlands who live with mental ill health or dementia, or who care for someone living with dementia, and feel lonely and isolated either geographically or socially. Our trained volunteers offer confidential, regular social contact from which genuine friendships develop, improving the lives of our friends right across the Highlands. Befrienders Highland has been providing a valuable service since 1993. We now offer a face-to-face befriending service in Inverness and Nairn, as well as distance befriending service across the Highlands by phone, letter and email.
