Time For Change Befrienders – Shelter Scotland (Aberdeen Hub)

More than half a million people a year come to Shelter Scotland for advice and support via our website, help lines, and national network of services. We help people to find and keep a home in a place where they can thrive and we tackle the root causes of bad housing by campaigning for new laws, policies and practice.

Befrienders build a trusting relationship and provide emotional support to a person who is experiencing homelessness or bad housing. Our service in Aberdeen supports those experiencing housing issues. This is a structured and time-limited relationship where you will support a person to achieve agreed personal goals, often based on your own life experience.

There is a detailed induction and training, providing all the information and skills needed to fulfil the role, including a dedicated session on Befriending. All volunteers will be supported by a fantastic team in the Aberdeen Hub.
