Everyone can feel lonely and isolated at times, especially if experiencing hardship.
In April 2021, in response to the devastating effects of loneliness and isolation on people's mental health and wellbeing, that the pandemic only exacerbated, TLC responded by working with our partners across the city to set up a befriending service to combat the effects of loneliness and isolation in Aberdeen
how our service works
Our service aims to place expertly trained and compassionate volunteers with individuals referred, not only to offer friendship, but also support to build their resilience, giving confidence to enter back into their community, bringing joy and life back into their experiences.
We offer a full training package on offer and regular supervision available for any issues that may arise. You will not just be left on your own, we will be with you every step of the way.
If you are interested in making a difference in the life of someone in your community in this way, please apply to become a TLC Befriender with us.
