Independent Age - Friendship Service

Would you like to receive regular phone calls or visits from a friendly, dedicated volunteer? It's an opportunity to talk about things that interest you, or just have a catch-up and a chat.

A friendly voice to talk to

Good company and conversation is enjoyable and important for our wellbeing.

A regular telephone call or visit from one of our friendly volunteers can make all the difference - even if you only need it for a short time. It gives you the chance to have a regular chat with someone friendly and trustworthy.

Our volunteers are people who enjoy listening, talking, and getting to know people. They are trained by Independent Age and have all the checks you would expect.

Some people receive regular phone calls and some receive visits at home. The first step is to call Independent Age. We will discuss your needs and preferences, and then together we will work out what would work best for you.

If you'd like to discuss receiving regular phone calls or visits, or just want to find out more, call Independent Age on 0800 319 6789.
