A friendly voice to talk to

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

It can be hard staying in contact with people as time goes by, especially if you've lost touch with close friends or family, or your health isn't what it used to be.

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, like me, you're on your own, it's nice to know someone's going to phone. It gives me something to look forward to

Derek, 83
