Age UK Sunderland’s Keeping in Touch Service offers a vital lifeline to anyone aged 50+ who is lonely or isolated and lives within the City of Sunderland.
Building friendships and helping to alleviate loneliness
- Live alone
- Are housebound
- Have days when they see no one
Some older people feel that they wouldn't like to have a visitor coming into their home, but a regular call can build up a friendship without intrusion. Through the Co-ordinator and a team of volunteers, our Telephone Companionship service offers regular phone calls to alleviate loneliness and provides a regular point of contact for the older person, giving them a friendly call to look forward to.
If you would like a call or a visit from one of our volunteers, or if you know someone who you feel might benefit, please get in touch with our Keeping in Touch Co-ordinator using the details below.
