Edinburgh Choices - Bfriends Edinburgh

Name Bfriends Edinburgh

Our befriending service supports children and young people who have problems at home, school or in the community. Examples include:

  • if their parents have separated or other changes have taken place in their family life
  • when they are affected by their parents or carers substance misuse.

Adult volunteer befrienders support children and young people on a one to one, weekly basis. The service has a base where you can meet to play games, cook, do arts and crafts, read or listen to music. You may also access activities in the community and take part in organised group activities.

The service is available in the North Edinburgh, Wester Hailes and Gilmerton areas.

Support for Young people aged 5 - 14
