Friendship Caller Volunteer

Help us to tackle loneliness and social isolation.

Our statistics have revealed that 240,000 people in Scotland regard the television or a pet as their closest companion. Here at Age Scotland, we aim to tackle loneliness and social isolation on a practical level through our Community Connecting service and friendship line – and we need your help!

The friendship line is part of the wider Age Scotland Helpline. The purpose of a friendship caller is to provide calls of companionship to people who are 50 and over, who may live alone or feel alone and would benefit from a chat. Having a conversation can have such a positive impact, we can talk about many things that aren’t Coronavirus related, for example current interests, hobbies, previous work life – the list is endless!

Whether you want to develop your skills or just make a difference – this role is for you!
