Telephone Befrienders Wanted! Not having someone to talk to regularly can be lonely and isolating. A friendly chat on the telephone can make all the difference.Carers may live away from family and friends and be unable to join their local community at events due to their caring role or personal health problems.
Carers may be isolated with minimal support, their caring role may be extremely difficult and extra support is always beneficial. A listening ear, emotional support, signposting to other services are all available from Volunteer Telephone Befrienders.
Are You a Carer?
A carer is someone who supports a family member, friend or neighbour who has a long term condition, disability, illness or who is frail. They are husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, daughters or sons, friends, or even a caring neighbour.
