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.
