Befriending

The aim of our befriending project in  Dundee is to address the increasing social isolation of Muslim and Minority Ethnic women over the age of 50, to support them to build their own social networks, and live better quality and connected lives.

Our trained volunteers, work on a one to one basis by visiting women at home or accompanying them to organised activities, thus allowing women to build up their confidence, increase their knoweldge and wellbeing.

Whilst waiting to be matched to a befriender, we support women via telephone befriending in the women’s preferred spoken language.

Our group befriending, which acts as peer support offers the following:

Walking groups

Monthly lunch club

Physical and mental wellbeing information sessions

Yoga

English conversation classes

IT workshops

We’re always looking for volunteers to support the project.  If you’re interested please contact us on info@mwrc.org.uk

 

“This project has been a valuable support and a good way of meeting other women, making new friends”

Helpline

The helpline is a listening ear for women across Scotland. All calls are strictly confidential and non-judgemental; we always deal with clients in a faith and culturally-sensitive manner.

We can help women in English, Urdu, Arabic, Bangla and Swahili and, when required, using online interpreting.
