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.

Drawing on a Memory

As part of the international 'Big Draw' event 2015, Cowal Befrienders are hosting a community art project which we would like you to be a part of.

Faciliated by local artist and Befrienders' employee, Samantha Jones, groups of local people will come together to discuss their lives and then take part in a drawing workshop using a variety of materials. For more information, please click the image below.
