In partnership with Age UK. 

Not having someone to talk to regularly can be lonely and isolating, particularly if you’re used to sharing your home and time with others.

Friendship Calls and Good Day Calls

Our free weekly telephone calls can make all the difference if you are feeling lonely.

Initially, our team will make short ‘Good Day’ telephone calls to you every week for a few weeks, in order to get to know you a bit better and have a friendly chat. 

After 6 weeks or so, we'll match you up with one of our volunteers for a weekly telephone ‘Friendship Call’ which can be up to 30 minutes long.

We work hard to match you with a volunteer who has similar interests to yourself and who we think you will get along with.

How Call in Time works

Call in Time supports people aged 60+ who are;

  • Living alone
  • Socially isolated or lonely
  • Recently bereaved
  • Caring for someone
  • Recently out of hospital or experiencing a significant change to their daily living arrangements
  • Assessed as benefiting from the service

All 'Call in Time' calls are free to recipients, and delivered Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm.

If you or someone you know would benefit from this friendship service, call us on 01792 64 88 66 to make a referral today.
