LINK was set up in 1996 as a result of demand from service users and workers who felt there was a gap in adult mental health service provision that could be met by a befriending service.
LINK Adolescent Project was set up in January 2003 to help young people (12 to 18 year olds) improve their resilience, self-esteem, confidence and mental wellbeing, through the support of a consistent and reliable befriender.
Our volunteers provide practical, social and emotional support and aim to help young people access social and community activities and resources which they may find difficult or impossible to achieve on their own.
Befriending benefits the mental health of vulnerable young people by reducing the social isolation they often feel. This is of particular value for young people living in the socially and rurally isolated areas we cover.Address:
