Call Companions

The call companions idea is very simple: a volunteer call companion (telephone befriender) calls the same older person either weekly or fortnightly at a mutually agreed time for an informal chat. Calls will last for around 30 minutes. The call companions service is aimed at people who are • aged 55+ • identify as socially isolated or lonely • have sufficiently good hearing to take on regular phone calls. At the time the older person is referred, we’ll ask a general question about the older person’s interests or hobbies to make sure we match them with a volunteer and to help spark conversation. Our volunteers all receive training, which includes topics such as safeguarding and how to engage in difficult conversations. Call companions are supported by call coordinators who monitor the success of the partnership for both the older person and volunteer.
