Welcome

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.

Team Members Required for
Caledonian Challenge


Cowal Befrienders are hoping to enter a team of between 4 and 6 people in to this year's Caledonian Challenge event - involving walking 54 miles along the West Highland Way in just 24 hours. We will be fundraising to help deliver our range of Befriending services across Cowal & Bute.

All team members will be expected to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship. Physical fitness and a sense of humour are key attributes!
