Who are the Third Sector?

Befrienders Skye and Lochalsh is funded by the Highland Hospice, the National Lottery and the Green Health Partnership.  We work with GP’s, Social Work, Third Sector Organisations and Families to match clients with a volunteer befriender.  Although Covid-19 has stopped our volunteers from meeting with clients face to face we are continuing to provide befriending support through telephone befriending and our emergency response service Community Calls.
