“Would you like to reap the benefits of carrying out the role of a Volunteer Telephone Befriender? We are looking for people who can regularly telephone a vulnerable person, experiencing loneliness and social isolation, living within the Angus community.

By enrolling to become a Volunteer Telephone Befriender, you are playing a vital role in reducing social isolation and loneliness, within the Angus community.
