Dumfries and Galloway Befriending Project is currently expanding into Newton Stewart and the Machars.
If you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis, they would love to hear from you.
The Project recruits, trains and matches adult volunteers with vulnerable young people aged between eight and 18 on a one-to-one basis, providing support, friendship and a positive role model. Training, support and all out-of-pocket expenses are provided.
