Befriend at the End

Friendship, concern, & information at life’s end

Welcome to Befriend at the End

We support people concerned about their choices at the end of life, & those suffering from distress, especially if associated with the end of life. We also promote knowledge about these choices, & choices regarding a dignified death. Contact one of our befrienders by telephone.

Befriend at the End provides care, compassion, & companionship to people at the end of their lives, particularly those in distress, or those with a terminal illness or incurable condition causing hopeless & unbearable suffering with no reasonable prospect of relief.

Befriend at the End evolved from Friends at the End, which continues to campaign to change the law on assisted dying in Scotland. Although now separate organisations, we entirely support its campaigning objectives & continue to work closely alongside it.

Meanwhile, the focus of our befrienders is to provide tangible support & advocacy to those who wish for it. Support might come in the form of information on available services, advice on end of life choices, or simply offering a listening ear. Friends at the End members may wish to offer more hands-on support.

We are always happy to talk to any member who feels that they would like to provide comfort & support to people facing the end of their lives, & who can bring confidence & compassion to such a vital, life-affirming role. If that is you, please get in touch.
