Volunteers are sought for a pilot befriending project, entitled Skye and Lochalsh Neighbours and Friends.
The project aims to reduce loneliness and isolation experienced by people in the areas of Skye and Lochalsh.
The project will be run by Skye and Lochalsh Council for Voluntary Organisation and the Highland Hospice.
Anyone with two or three hours spare per fortnight is invited to get in touch.
Volunteers will be required to attend a two day training session on 12 September from 10:30am to 3:30pm and on 26 September from 10:30am to 4:00pm at the SLCVO office in Portree.
