An Aberdeen charity is appealing to the public to help build relationships with people in the north-east.
Inspire is hoping to recruit more people to act as befrienders for their service, which will see members of the public paired up with people who are supported by the charity, allowing them to carry out activities to enhance their life experiences.
Based on the Beach Boulevard in Aberdeen, Inspire is a disability support charity which aims to empower the life choices of adults and young people alike, who have learning difficulties and additional support needs in the north-east area.
It currently offers more than 50 services, from support in the community, to training for employment initiatives.
An appeal has been launched to secure more people to provide essential support.
A spokesman for Inspire said: “By befriending with Inspire you will form a positive, supportive relationship with an individual we support.
“Make a real difference to peoples’ lives by carrying out an activity or hobby on a regular monthly basis with someone that Inspire supports.”
Individuals who are interested in supporting a person at Inspire will be paired with someone who is of a similar age, and has the same type of interests.
