SeAscape has an award winning Befriending Service which is open to all residents of South Ayrshire who are over 16 years of age

Our Aim

It is our aim to help the people of South Ayrshire, suffering from loneliness, isolation for one reason or another and help them to make new friends and feel more settled in their homes and communities.



There are three parts to the service,

One to one befriending

Trained Volunteer / befriender who will meet you on a one to one basis for a few hours, once a week.  This can be to meet up for a coffee and chat or to take up a hobby or interest.

Group befriending

More like a coffee morning type scenario where volunteers and befriendees meet up weekly on a social occasion or occasional day trip. This service has also expanded into more remote areas of South Ayrshire like Troon / Girvan as well as our main group in Ayr. We also run a much smaller more exclusive our once a week peer befriending service in the local snooker hall. (referral only)
