LEAP's befriending service offer one-to-one befriending in people's
We are the leading befriending service for older people in
Lanarkshire and have won the Quality in Befriending award. We were
also awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, an
organisational equivalent of being awarded an MBE.
Our one-to-one befriending service matches volunteer befrienders
with clients aged 50 and over in their homes to offer companionship
and chat, helping to combat isolation and loneliness.
We currently have more than 100 befriender volunteers who, in the
past year alone, gave almost 3,500 hours of their time to provide
companionship to people in their homes.
This service currently operates in Cambuslang, Rutherglen, Blantyre,
Bothwell, Uddingston, Hamilton, East Kilbride and across the
Avondale area. People using our befriending services also often use
our handyperson services.
