Help people who feel alone

Just a few hours a week from you could make the future brighter for someone experiencing loneliness or social isolation.

What our volunteers do

Loneliness and social isolation affect people across the UK of all ages and backgrounds.

Being or feeling alone can have a devastating impact on people’s health and wellbeing, as well as on communities, hospitals and other public services.

Through just a few hours a week, you could provide a huge help for someone experiencing loneliness or social isolation.

How to get involved

We provide volunteer support to tackle loneliness in the following areas of Aberdeen:

- Stoneywood

- Seaton

- Bucksburn

- Northfield

- Bridge of Don

- Dyce

If you would like to volunteer with us, give us a ring or send us an email and we will contact you within a few days to provide further details and discuss how you can get involved.

What we can offer you

Volunteering in your area will give you the chance to:

  • meet new people 

  • learn new skills

  • offer practical help to members of your own community.


What you can expect

We’ll give you all the training and support you need to do your role.

You will help people in your local area, which could involve having a chat over a cup of tea, going for a stroll or accompanying them to a community group.

You will join a local team of volunteers who generously give their time to our Connecting Communities service.
