3 in 10 Scottish adults reported feeling lonely at some point in the last week*

Our Peer Connecting service supports people who are experiencing isolation and loneliness. They’re matched with a volunteer who supports them to explore and connect with their local community and build their confidence. Our Peer Connecting services are needed now more than ever.

As little as £4 a month could support a volunteer like Andrew to help end loneliness in your community.

“Strength is a sense of belonging, a sense of being. It’s the anchors that you have in your life, which a lot of people don’t have, or which they lose through circumstances.” Andrew, Peer Connecting Volunteer
