Omega Chatterbox Telephone Befriending Service

Description:

Omega Chatterbox Telephone Befriending Service is a free telephone befriending service supporting carers, former carers, the bereaved, the frail-elderly and the socially isolated. Lonely clients are carefully matched to trained volunteer befrienders and receive regular support phone calls.

Their Action Against Loneliness Programme offers a flexible, free, friendly telephone support, from an Omega volunteer who will keep in touch offering you:

  • a listening ear;
  • a chance to find out more about local services;
  • help to access information and support.

Family caregivers, former carers, the bereaved and other people who live alone or who are in crisis can find it difficult to keep in touch with friends and family, and sometimes they can find it hard to make new friends.  The Omega Chatterbox Action Against Loneliness Programme recruits, trains and supports volunteers who understand the issues faced by caregivers, former carers and people living on their own.

If you would like to try the programme or you would like to find out more about it, please follow the link to their website or contact them using the details provided.
