Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin's Reach volunteers support our older LGBT+ community with telephone companionship.

How we can help

Reach offers older LGBT+ people a regular confidential phone call with a friendly trained volunteer. You might want to talk about what’s on your mind or simply talk about what you’ve been getting up to. We have someone who can listen. We'll match you up with a like-minded person who has similar interests or hobbies.

This service is free of charge and can be accessed for as long or as little time as you need.

How Reach can benefit you or someone you know:

• It can help to reduce the feeling of loneliness
• It provides you with a regular and consistent volunteer to speak to
• It can help you to build confidence to attend social activities you would like to reengage with or may have not done before
• It provides a vital connection to someone that can signpost you to additional support.
