Referrals for one to one befriending can come from anyone working with a young person, aged 8-14, living within East Lothian. They can be care experienced, have difficulties at home, school or in the community. This can include, for example; behavioural issues, bullying, drug & alcohol misuse, abuse, disengagement from school, mental health challenges, and bereavement.

The first step is to contact me to discuss the young person’s needs and how we can best help.

My name is Sally Harris.  I am the #engagebefriending coordinator.
