01/06/2017 - Youth-Link (Dundee) becomes BeFriends We are delighted to announce that after months of planning and hard work behind the scenes Youth-Link (Dundee) has now formally changed its name to BeFriends.
The decision to change our name was taken in May of 2016 as the current name did not fit with our future plans to support older young people nor did it really say what we actually do.
Linda Smith (BeFriends Project Manager) said "We are so happy to finally be able to share this exciting change with everyone. It has taken us a while to get here but we feel that it has been well worth the wait. We have a lots of work to do to promote this change but we feel that our new name and look is fantastic and has been the right decision to move the organisation forward. Although it will take some work getting our new name out there we feel that the additional promotion will most definitely help us reach even more isolated and vulnerable young people as well as also recruiting some much needed additional volunteers"
The aims and referral criteria of our One-to-One-Befriending Project remains unchanged at present and you can find all of our updated forms and information leaflets on our new website.
A formal launch of the Organisation will take place later this year.
