BeFriend is a project of Berwickshire Housing Association, funded by the The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland. We provide one to one befriending and group activities for people who are 55 and over, living in Berwickshire or Kelso.

In the current situation, BeFriend is providing telephone befriending only.

If you are feeling isolated or lonely at this time and would appreciate a regular weekly call to chat with one of our friendly team members, please contact us on 01361 884 000 or email

Our volunteers and staff are vetted (registered with the PVG scheme), fully trained and supported.
