About the Befriending Service - Telephone

There are times in everyone’s life when we can feel lonely or isolated. For some people it can be that they live on their own, for others it may be that they are caring for their loved one.

Our Befriending service offers people aged 50 or over a friendly weekly phone call with one of our local volunteers or Befriending Co-ordinator. We call weekly for an enjoyable and stimulating chat and also offer the opportunity to take part in a fun quiz, all of which can help to ease feelings of loneliness and isolation.

Our Befriending service is free for our members and we welcome the support of volunteers and donations to help us continue running this service.
