Befriend Motherwell

Charity registered in Scotland SC045376

Befriend Motherwell aims to reduce loneliness and isolation for elderly people within the Motherwell and Wishaw area. The organisation recruits volunteers to visit elderly people within their own homes, for at least an hour a week, perhaps even taking them on an outing.

Current opportunity

Volunteers will visit an elderly person within their own home, work with a group or by telephone on a regular basis. This can take place at any time of the week, and volunteers will be asked to support the elderly person for an hour or two per week. Volunteers will help the elderly befriendee by taking them on outings, helping build their self-esteem and confidence, and share hobbies and experiences, as well as having fun. No previous experience is required and volunteers will be provided with full training.
