Did You Know

Are you interested in becoming a Strathcarron Hospice Befriender?

1There are few more rewarding things in life than making a difference to the lives of others, particularly at a time of greatest need.

Strathcarron Befrienders are volunteers who give their time freely to offer social and practical support to people who have an advancing illness or a condition which limits their ability to participate in things which are important to them, often making them feel isolated or lonely. They do not provide personal care,

domestic duties or administer medication.

We are looking to recruit new Befrienders.

What we require is someone with a friendly ear, a caring disposition and a few hours to spare either weekly or fortnightly to visit a person in their local community.

Training, support and expenses will be provided.

Volunteers make an enormous difference by giving up their valuable time and sharing skills to support patients and their families, both within the Hospice and in the community.
