Telephone Befriending

Telephone befriending is a vital service for vulnerable people who are very isolated. Those who receive telephone befriending benefit immensely from the service.

‘The Cross’ Angus Third Sector Centre was opened by Aileen Campbell MSP Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government on Friday 8th November 2019.

Aileen Campbell said the Scottish Government was keen to support the third sector as they could engage with people in a way local, devolved or national government could not.

She said:  “They have a reach that we simply cannot match. That is why it is so important that we work well with them.

“There are lots of benefits in the central location for the hub. This is an example of real regeneration in the heart of Forfar.”

One of the many benefits is that we also offer room booking for our Red Room that can meetings and includes teas and coffees included & use of a projector (if available).
