Queensferry Care Telephone Befriending Service

During COVID 19 lockdown Queesferry Care have been able to adapt their services to stay connected to their service users.  With full training given, volunteers are now able to offer a telephone befriending service as part of our NEW Connecting Communities initiative, supported by funding from Befriending Networks.

This service is available to older people in South Queensferry, Ratho, Ratho Station, Dalmeny, Newbridge and Kirkliston.

Never before has it been so important or as easy to connect.
