East Fife and Levenmouth Mental Health Befriending Projects
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.
In 2003 LINK set up the Adolescent Befriending Project working with 12 - 18 year olds in East Fife and Levenmouth.
The projects aim to recruit, train and support volunteers who will be matched to people who are isolated due to mental problems.
Referrals to the service come from various agencies, including Health, Social Work and the Voluntary Sector.
LINK is an independent organisation with its own policies, procedures and Management Committee.
LINK are pleased to announce that we have, after many years of paying the Real Living wage, become an accredited Real Living Wage Employer.
