Fife Befriending Young Carers

What can the project offer me or someone I am working with?

We enable young people aged 12 to 18 who have caring role at home in Fife to experience the same opportunities as their peers. Our fantastic Lead Scotland Volunteer Befriender’s can help provide support to young people that can improve their confidence and connection with their community.

The service aims to be flexible and as such will operate on a case by case basis, however it is anticipated that the support will be for up to 2 hours per week for a duration of up to 1 year.

How do I refer myself or someone I am working with?
