A friendly voice to talk to
Friendship services to support you or a loved one.
Imagine your only form of contact is doing the shopping once a week, maybe you speak to your neighbours now and then, but you rarely see anyone else. Sadly, there are many older people living their lives this way and with little contact from family members or friends. Our free Friendship Sevices are designed to reduce feelings of loneliness in older people. We have a team of trained and supported volunteers who call people regularly on the telephone, and in some cases visit in person, to catch up for a chat.
If you or someone you know, think you would benefit from this service, visit the Independent Age website or for an informal chat,
call us on 0800 319 6789
