Befriends Dundee offers a one-to-one befriending service that provides the friendship and support of trained, vetted and disclosure checked adult volunteers to local young people who have been referred as a result of experiencing difficulty within their lives.

The project addresses the individual support needs of isolated and disadvantaged young people by providing activities and volunteer befrienders. Through this service, the volunteer and young person enjoy activities together once a week or once every two weeks. These outings offer the young person an opportunity to enjoy themselves and gain new experiences whilst allowing them a safe space to discuss any problems or difficulties they may be facing.

We would like to extend our service to 18-25 year olds who may be experiencing difficulty in their lives or would like an opportunity for socialising.
