TLC – Befriending Service

At TLC our vision is to help care for our community. We believe in meeting the real needs of people. The TLC Befriending Service provides befriending for older adults in a care home/sheltered housing setting alongside other befrienders in south Aberdeen.


Current opportunity

Everyone can feel lonely and isolated at times, especially if experiencing hardship. This year, in response to the crippling effects of loneliness and isolation on peoples wellbeing (physical, emotional, social and mental health), that the pandemic has only exacerbated, TLC have responded to this need and developed a befriending service to combat the loneliness and isolation felt by many in our city. Our aim is that our expertly trained and compassionate volunteers will not only provide a lifeline to people, in the form of friendship, but also a helping hand to reconnect to the community, bringing joy and passion back into people’s lives. If you would like to be a beacon of hope to someone in need, please do apply to join our team.
