Get involved in telephone befriending

by Sandwell Advocacy

If you have time to make a phone call, it could make all the difference. This is an invitation to contact Sandwell residents who are missing their usual chats and interactions with family and friends, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Calls can be any length of time depending on the arrangement agreed. Some people want just a few minutes, others like to talk for longer. It is determined by the needs of the person and the availability of the volunteer. Full training and support given, expenses covered.
