Would you like to refer someone else to our service?

We tackle social isolation in the North Berwick Coastal Ward. Our services include Scone Café and Coffee Connections meet-ups, Scone Walking group walks, befriending, Buddy Walks, Compassionate Communities – our project on death, dying and bereavement and Community Connections monthly newsletter. We can’t offer support to individuals with severe /enduring mental health issues. We don’t offer a Sitter Service or Carer Respite, though in some cases accessing our services may be helpful to couples where one partner has mild dementia. Please get in touch to discuss.

Once we receive your form, we’ll get in touch as soon as we can to talk this over.
