RNIB Talk & Support - telebefriending

Description: This provides opportunities for you to socialise in small groups by phone to build friendships and get peer support with other people in a similar situation. We match individuals together for conversations based on age and group preferences. Trained volunteers or RNIB staff facilitate the groups. Talk and Support befriending groups meet on the same day, at the same time, each week. Each group runs for 55 minutes. Facilitators help the group chat together and keep the conversation flowing.

Cost: Free of charge. The Talk and Support team will always call you to connect you to your telephone group so there is no charge.
