There are currently two befriending services available to older people.

Our local service, Keep in Touch, provided by local volunteers, or the national service provided by Age UK 'Call in Time'

Keep in Touch

Keep in Touch is our new befriending service, linking older people who may not get the opportunity for a regular friendly chat, with one of our friendly telephone volunteers.

You’ll receive a weekly call, at a time that suits you, giving you the chance to chat and form new friendships over the phone.

You do not need a formal referral to access this service. Just contact us using the details below to find out more about the service and to book a call from one of our volunteers. 

We may not be able to pair you up with a volunteer immediately, but we will try our hardest to set you up as quickly as we can. Before you know it, you’ll be chatting away with a new friend about anything that takes your fancy!

With thanks to Macclesfield Town Council for helping support the service for Macclesfield residents
