Community Volunteers Enabling You (COVEY) has operated across Lanarkshire for 31 years supporting 4,500 children, young people and parents/carers to become more resilient, safe and better equipped to reach their full potential. COVEY provides 1-1 and group-based befriending, mentoring and intensive family support.

You may also give individual support when appropriate and be involved in the development of new programmes.
