Telephone Befriending Volunteer

Age UK Norfolk’s befriending project offers a lifeline to many older people who would otherwise feel lonely and isolated across Norfolk. Telephone befriending is a chatty, friendly weekly call, made from home. It’s the building of relationships with members and passing on requests for other support. It sounds simple, but it makes a significant impact. 

One of our older people said "We get on so well even though I’m 91 and she is in her 20’s. I make her laugh and she makes me laugh too. We talk about all sorts of things; houses, TV, gardens. I think she’s lovely and I do look forward to our chats”.
