Charity registered in Scotland SC030132
Interest Link provides a group and 1:1 befriending service to children, young people and adults with learning disabilities throughout the Scottish Borders. The service is delivered by 200 volunteers, who are supported by Interest Link staff.
Our service exists to overcome the social exclusion of people with learning disabilities and enable them to pursue interests, participate in community activities, make choices, gain skills and develop independence.
We have 4 branches: the Roxburgh Branch is managed by Val Reilly, who supports 1:1 links for all ages across the whole of Roxburgh. Val also runs fortnightly children’s (8-16yrs) and young people’s (16-25yrs) groups in Hawick and the Caledonian befriending groups for adults.
