Friendship groups​


LEAP's befriending service offers friendship groups and

one-to-one befriending in people's homes.

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.

We currently have friendship groups in
Rutherglen, Cambuslang, Blantyre,
Uddingston, Hamilton, and East Kilbride.

These groups meet regularly and, as well as meeting up for a chat,

also take part in activities as varied as board games and dominoes to

craft sessions, visiting speakers and days out. People attending our

groups often use our handyperson services as well.

All our groups are led by staff or trained volunteers.

If you know someone who might enjoy being part of one of our groups, or would like to become a group volunteer, call 0141 641 5169 or email
