What We Do

Kincardine & Deeside Befriending is a local registered charity which aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness in older people throughout the Kincardine and Deeside area by matching them on a one to one basis with a volunteer befriender.

A visit from a befriender can provide companionship, practical and emotional support and generally improve physical and mental wellbeing.  In many cases, a carer also benefits from the welcome respite provided.
