Description

We are Aberdeen's own and Scotland's oldest befriending organisation for children. We provide volunteer adult befrienders to local, vulnerable and underprivileged children aged 4-16. The befrienders introduce the children to new activities and interests that might not otherwise be available to them and the befriending relationship can help improve the youngsters' confidence and self-esteem. Most importantly it teaches the youngsters that there are adults out there who they can trust, rely on and respect.
 

Why Women Connect?

The group provides an excellent opportunity to meet with and hear from women from so many different backgrounds - all with advice to give and experience to tap in to.
