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 Central Borders Branch is managed by Stefanie Poletyllo, who supports 1:1 links for all ages across the whole of Central Borders. Stefanie also runs fortnightly children’s (8-16yrs) and young people’s (16-25yrs) groups in Galashiels and (for three 6-week terms a year) befriending groups for adults.
