About Our Organisation

K & D Befriending was established in 1996. Originally under the umbrella of the local Voluntary Action Network the project became independent in 2001; a Management Committee was formed and the project was given charitable status (SCO32594).

The project has offices in Stonehaven and Banchory and employs three members of staff:

Senior/Kincardine CoordinatorLiz Treasure
Deeside CoordinatorMaggie Dornan
AdministratorShona Adamson


In March 2007 K & D Befriending attained Approved Provider Standard, administered by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation, for the first time. This is a national benchmark and indicates that the project is operating safe and effective practices. Re-accreditation, for a further 3 years, was awarded in March 2016.
