Facilitated Friendships

Facilitated Friendships

A ‘facilitated friendship’ is where Ecas helps to facilitate a social relationship between two people with physical disabilities that are already known to each other, but who have lost touch through housing or mobility issues.

Ecas helps to rekindle and facilitate this relationship by providing a facilitator to assist with making practical arrangements, such as organising and covering the costs of accessible transport, to visit each other at home or on outings on a regular basis.

For further information on Ecas’ Facilitated Friendship service please contact: Ally or Sam on 0131 475 2344 or email befriendingassistant@ecas-edinburgh.org
