The Friendship Scheme

Friendship isn't a big thing, it's the hundred of small things that matter!

For many men and women with LD, social isolation and lonliness is one of the biggest challenges.  The Sunnybank Trust was founded on friendship and today provides three types of friendship through our team of voluntary friends.

a) A one to one friend:  A long-term volunteer friend matched with someone with LD who has been referred to us.

b) A group or home friend: A dedicated volunteer friend to a home or community group with LD.

c) A volunteer pen friend: to someone who enjoys receiving post. and who may want to write back. Click here for useful information for pen friends.

To ensure that the friendship is two way, we try and match the interests of prospective friends.  We provide an induction and training as well as further information of suitable activities and places to visit.  In return we ask you to make contact with your friend once a month and to keep us updated as to the times you spend with each other.

If you would like to find out more contact Enquiries@sunnybanktrust.org or call our office on 013727 49871.

“Volunteering at Sunnybank means a lot to me. It means being able to play a part in the community, a chance to meet lots of other people with a learning disability and understand what they can achieve with support and learn the challenges they face.”
