Description

Bee Busy, Befriend: Home, But Not Alone – Telephone Befrienders:
We have adapted and extended our befriending service by offering twice weekly telephone calls to people from our trained and experienced befrienders.

Initial provision will be for our most vulnerable, older people who were already experiencing loneliness and isolation before COVID-19 and have now had recent events add to their feelings of loneliness. A cheery telephone call once or twice a week would make all the difference to those who are stuck at home.

If you think you can help and would like to find out more about this volunteering opportunity, please be in touch.
