BeFriends is a thriving Dundee based charity Established in 1981. Over the years we have provided help and support to thousands of vulnerable and disadvantaged children in Dundee. Our One-to-One befriending is a platform of support to young people between, the ages of five and twenty five experiencing hardship. Our befriending offers an experience totally focused on the young person, their well being and their growth, most importantly its an avenue of social engagement and fun for the young person.
