Update on Befriending Service 20 May 2021

We were delighted when First Minister Nicola Sturgeon recently announced that restrictions would begin to ease across most of mainland Scotland.  This meant that from Monday 17 May 2021 home visits for befriending could begin as six individuals from three households can now meet indoors.

We appreciate that although we are all looking forward to reconnecting and getting life back on track there will be a degree of nervousness.  

Here at Kincardine and Deeside Befriending we understand that some people may choose to wait a bit longer before resuming indoor visits.  Please remember that volunteers and befriendees can contact their coordinator at any time to chat over any concerns they may have.

Details of the new rules can be found on the following link

Thank you for your continued support and co-operation.
