‘From the source to the sea’ document is a product of our thematic programme Threading the Needle which illustrates how befriending services may be able to help the Fife Partnership achieve its strategic priorities (and the nine national health and wellbeing outcomes).

It will also help other befriending services measure and demonstrate their contribution to strategic level outcomes.

This resource covers:

  • the need for befriending 
  • what’s involved in providing befriending
  • the difference befriending can make
  • practical examples.
