Mairi McNiven

Friendship Co-ordinator

While studying Psychology at the University of Stirling, Mairi gained valuable experience as a befriender, before joining the third sector helping people with learning disabilities and older people living with dementia. Mairi loves anything to do with the outdoors, meeting new people and hearing their stories. “Having seen first-hand how devastating loneliness and isolation can be, I have a deep appreciation for the positive impact friendship has on our mental wellbeing and the importance of providing support to help people to make and develop social connections. I am really excited to be part of such a fantastic project and to join Vintage Vibes on their mission to tackle social isolation and loneliness in Edinburgh”.
