Your Call - Our Telephone Befriending Service
Do you know about our telephone befriending service?
This service is for carers who may feel isolated or just find it hard to talk to those around them about the challenges of caring.
The conversation doesn't just have to be about caring, and we aim to match people according to their interests.
Our Telephone Befrienders are supporting 106 carers with calls every week, and feedback is hugely positive.
Carers have said they look forward to their calls, and others saying their befriender "listens and we have a good chat" and they "always feel better after talking".
Befrienders also enjoy the experience of volunteering their time and talking. One volunteer told us "I really look forward to my weekly calls with the carer I speak to and thoroughly enjoy our wide and varied conversations."
If you would be interested in speaking to someone, emails us and we can put you in touch.
