Our Call Line is a telephone call service with one of our volunteers making a well-being call to people who have indicated to us that they would benefit from this contact. Calls are available in the morning or afternoon Monday to Friday, and involve a check that all is well with them and an optional chat.

Many people are alone and suffer from social isolation and it can be very cheering to have a conversation with someone in the morning.

What do these phone calls mean to people?  

Below are some comments:

“Sometimes this is the only person I speak to all day. I really look forward to my chat with the call service people.”

“It is nice to know that someone cares. It’s just a telephone call but it really helps me to feel more secure.”
