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.

Over £900 Raised in Fundraising Event for New Mini-Bus

A team of 7 committed clients, staff and volunteers set off on a 13 mile sponsored walk on Saturday (25th October) to raise funds towards a new mini-bus for our Dementia Support service. Despite the awful weather, everyone made in back by 2.30pm to a well-deserved lunch and glass of bubbles!

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the event. Once all money is collected we look set to have raised over £900. A fantastic achievement!
