Shelter Scotland (Aberdeen Hub)

Charity registered in Scotland SC002327

Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services.

We strive every day to give people the help they need, and we campaign relentlessly to achieve our vision of a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone.

Current opportunity

Befrienders build a trusting relationship and provide emotional support to a person who is experiencing homelessness or bad housing. Our service in Aberdeen supports those experiencing housing issues. This is a structured and time-limited relationship where you will support a person to achieve agreed personal goals, often based on your own life experience. There is a detailed induction and training, providing all the information and skills needed to fulfil the role, including a dedicated session on Befriending. All volunteers will be supported by a fantastic team in the Aberdeen Hub. For more information please contact Anthea Reid, Volunteer Support Officer at Email: or tel.: 03445152340.
