About this programme



Make a Referral

Telephone befriending has been a vital service for the community of Angus especially during lockdown.

Our befriender co-ordinators currently support all befrienders and also ensures that befrienders and befriendees are suitably matched based on common interests etc.

At the moment, VAA currently has 125 befriender volunteers. These volunteers support over 200 people each week by calling them, having a chat and ensuring they are well and managing.

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
