How We Help

What The Project Offers

The Project offers young people experiencing challenges at home, school or in the community, the opportunity of extra support and regular positive adult attention.

Having a befriender can help the young person tackle difficulties before they get too big, introduce them to new activities and help them be the best they can be.  The young people benefit from the energy and enthusiasm of their befrienders and gain confidence from forming a positive relationship with a supportive adult.

Coordinators in Dumfries and Wigtownshire carefully match the young person with a volunteer and support the match by arranging regular and frequent progress meetings.
