Equal Futures (South Ayrshire)

Charity registered in Scotland SC033799

We recognise the importance of social connections for a good quality of life. Consequently, we offer 1-to-1 befriending for people with a learning disability or autism. This involves matching the focus person with an adult volunteer befriender. The befriender will then accompany the focus person to activities, clubs, and events in their local community, where they can make social connections. We also offer regular social events for our focus people and their families. Social events are supported by our volunteers and emphasise our welcoming Equal Futures Community in which everyone can feel a sense of belonging.

Current opportunities

Community Event Volunteers help us plan and facilitate our regular social events for people we support and their families in Ayrshire.

Volunteer Professionals use their expertise and knowledge to help a person we support and their family navigate through a challenging time or a period of transition.

Befrienders help a person we support build their confidence and participate in social activities within their community. This may include going for walks, participating in clubs or classes together, or attending Equal Future’s monthly social events.
