Update on Befriending Service 12 January 2021

On Tuesday 5 January 2021 the First Minister announced that mainland Scotland would remain at Level 4 with the added introduction of increased restrictions similar to the March 2020 lockdown.  Further guidance on these restrictions are published on the Scottish Government's website -

Under these restrictions we will be continuing our befriending service with telephone calls, letters and cards.  If you require further advice or have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your coordinator.

We will continue to monitor UK and Scottish Government announcements and will update our website and Facebook page with any changes.

We understand these are difficult and challenging times.  Thank you for your co-operation and support.

Take care and stay safe.
