Children and Young People’s Befriending
If you are living with HIV or Hepatitis C and have children aged 18 or younger, we can provide them with support and time-out through our Befriending service.
Your child would be matched with their very own volunteer Befriender who will take your child on fun, fortnightly outings. These can range from a visit to the zoo to a picnic in the park, from a trip to the seaside to climbing Arthur’s Seat, from swimming to an afternoon at the movies and an outing to a cafe.
Befriending outings provide a chance to have some fun, develop a new skill and have time out.
This project is part-funded by the Scottish Government (Children, Young People and Families Early Intervention Fund and ALEC Fund Grant)
