The No1 Befriending Agency is a social enterprise dedicated to reducing loneliness and isolation through a number of community support programmes.
Based in Glasgow, they provide a one-to-one ‘befriending’ service as well as providing personal and social support both at home and in the community.
By working with service users, their families and local partner agencies, the No1 Befriending Agency are able to ensure that their services are tailored to the individual’s needs and aspirations in a person-centered way.
The services offered by the No1 Befriending Agency include, but are not limited to:
Support with personal care including meal planning and preparation, housework, laundry, assistance with shopping or the collection of prescriptions. No1 also help with the care of pets.
Tailored towards the individual’s needs, whether if be someone to share a cup of tea with or to provide personal reassurance.
Providing regular social outings with similar peer groups, assistance in attending religious services, trips to libraries, shops, appointments, hairdressers and more.
Designed to allow people the flexibility to enjoy a holiday, No1 will provide a care assistant to provide people the same service on holiday that they would receive at home.
Designed to allow regular carers a well-earned break without the disruption of a quality care service.
An affordable alternative to residential care or nursing home admission.
