COVID update

In line with Government guidance, we have continually reviewed how we work with not only our clients, but our staff and volunteers as well.


With COVID restrictions in Scotland having been legally removed we have again reviewed how we deliver our services and, as things stand, the following is an up-to-date summary. We will update this page regularly so please check back for the latest information.

Office closures


Our offices and R:evolve Recycle shops are once again open for business.



While our one-to-one befriending has returned to face to face meetings, we are still offering “remote” befriending via the telephone, email or apps such as Zoom. In fact, some of our long-term matches have continued as telephone befriending as the client and volunteer prefer this option for the moment.


We have also re-introduced our friendship groups where premises are allowed to do so. In all cases, clients and volunteers discuss and agree whether they should wear a mask. Call 0141 641 5169 to find out more.

Handyperson service

Our handyperson service, free to over 50s for small jobs, is now able to do more work to help keep clients safe in their homes and will work safely to meet the needs of individual clients and volunteers. Call 0141 641 5169 to find out more.

Home and Garden Maintenance

This new service safely carries out paid work for clients, providing quality work at a price people can trust. If the job can't be done by our team of volunteers, we ask one of our trusted traders to quote for the work. Call 0141 641 5169 for details.


Learning and Leisure


We are now running a full programme of activities, mainly face to face but with online activities an option where participants prefer this approach. Visit our What's On page or call 0141 641 5169 for details.
