About Us

Befrienders Highland is a registered charity employing a small core staff of 9 (3 full time staff and 6 part-time). The direction and management of Befrienders Highland are guided by a board of Directors and the Executive Director. We also work with an ever increasing number of volunteers, all of whom give their time, efforts and kindness selflessly and without whom Befrienders Highland would not be the success it is nor would we able to offer the services we do.
