Get Involved

With so many ways to make a difference, you can choose how you get involved.


Befrienders Highland only has a small core team of staff for all of its services, yet we are able to offer very valuable and effective befriending services right across the Highland region.  We are only able to provide such wide ranging and effective services because of the commitment and efforts of our increasing and dedicated army of excellent volunteers, without whom we would cease to function.

We believe everybody has strengths in different areas and we would love to utilise your strengths by inviting you to become part of our amazing team of volunteers.

Volunteering with Befrienders Highland will also give you an opportunity to develop skills while gaining experience and knowledge in a range of areas.
