Telephone Befriending

Description: The aim of the service is to provide social support and friendship to our service users and people with sight loss, through one to one phone conversations (lasting approx 20 - 30 minutes). Service users will receive weekly telephone calls from their allocated volunteer. We use a matching system which links up service users and volunteers which considers similarities between the two.

Cost: There is no cost to use this service.
