We speak at the Parliament

We went to the Scottish parliament yesterday to talk about the importance of Befriending.

Maria, a volunteer, and Remi, a parent spoke to MSPs at the Befriending Impact event organised by Befriending Networks. They powerfully described the loneliness of early parenthood and how home visits from volunteers can raise parent's confidence.

We also heard fascinating stories from other volunteer organisations including Food Train, COVEY, Epilepsy Connexion and Edinburgh Headway.
