Welcome to the forums @Laurs78 - it's great to have you here.
I'm really sorry to hear your son struggles with making friends, that must be really hard for him and worrying for you.
We have some resources on our website about friendships that might be worth a look if you're interested.
Also, please feel free to start a new thread where you can discuss your concerns some more if you'd like to - we're here for you.
I really like your ideas about a buddy system in schools - it would be so helpful if there were some more practical ways to support young people with making friends.
