Call on Me involves making welfare calls to individuals from the comfort of your own home. This service aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness and enables people to contribute to, as well as benefit from, the opportunity to connect with others. The project hopes to have a positive impact on the people we support and that both volunteers and call recipients will benefit from increased wellbeing as a result!
If you are interested in volunteering with the Call on Me service, you would be allocated individuals to make contact with on a regular basis, at a time that suits you.
