he Butterfly Trust provides support in the community for people affected by cystic fibrosis throughout Scotland. Our team of trained volunteers provide face to face support services that include emotional support, help to negotiate official systems in regard to housing, education and employment issues, befriending for children, mentoring for adults, massage therapy and transport to hospital appointments for people who are not sick enough to qualify for mobility help and cannot afford a car.

Adults living with this progressive and debilitating condition can face a variety of challenges that disadvantage them socially, financially and in the workplace. Their restrictions on their lifestyle can leave them isolated and sometimes struggling to cope. A Mentor will meet with young adult(s) regularly to build a trusting one to one relationship and provide ongoing practical support. The relationship will help achieve a better quality of life by broadening their horizons, improving their confidence and increasing their independence.

A Mentor must have access to a car and held a clean driving licence for a minimum of two years.
