We are delighted to be offering a Telephone Befriending Service to existing and new clients over 65 affected by cancer or COVID-19 in order to reduce isolation and loneliness during the current pandemic when face to face activities are reduced and clients are less able to visit the Centre.
Our befriending volunteers will make regular calls to clients over a time-limited period. These one-to-one telephone calls will provide friendly, informal support to help people maintain social connection in their lives and introduce them to our online services and activities.
Clients will have the opportunity to chat socially, talk about how they are feeling and encouraged to try our online workshops, wellbeing classes and support groups. If clients wish they will then have the opportunity to sit in on group video chat sessions with other clients.
To refer someone to this service or register your interest please contact us on 020 8321 6300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
