Cowal Elderly Befrienders SCIO provides a range of Befriending Services designed to improve quality of life, reduce isolation and loneliness and keep older people independent and active for as long as possible in the communities they helped create.

We believe that keeping active and enjoying life more leads to better physical and mental health, which helps older people deal with problems and keeps them living in their own homes for as long as possible.

New Bus for Dementia Support Service

Cowal Befrienders are delighted to announce the delivery of a new minibus to help in the delivery of our Dementia Support service. The specially adapted Citroen Berlingo was purchased with the help of a £15,000 grant from the Wolfson Foundation, as well as a local fundraising campaign spearheaded by users of the service.

Dementia Support is an increasingly vital arm of Cowal Befrienders’ range of services, with 73 clients receiving support over the past 12 months.
