The Call of Friendship. Veterans, like many older people, are feeling more isolated than ever before.

The Call of Friendship Project:

The project has been set up in recognition that veterans, like many older people, are feeling more isolated than ever before. The project wraps our current emergency services and tailors them for veterans. 

Free support services available to veterans: 

  • Information and Advice: On a range of issues, including money, housing and care.  Expert advisors can assist over the telephone with benefit entitlement claims and also signpost to other organisations as required.

  • Check-in and Chat: We match volunteers to veterans to provide friendly one-to-one chats on a regular basis to help combat loneliness and give veterans a sense of self-worth and value. The volunteer usually builds
    a friendship with the veteran over time.

  • Get Technology support. We have a team of volunteers who provide telephone technology advice and support to help veterans get online and answer their technical, tablet, laptop or mobile phone queries.

Please signpost or refer veterans, including people who served in National Service, who would benefit from the Call of Friendship and Support project to Age UK Surrey.

The Call of Friendship project has been made possible by the support of The Armed Forces Covenant Trust
