Telephone Befriending Service
Do you sometimes feel you don't have anybody to talk to?
Would you like to hear a friendly voice on the phone once a week, someone who understands about caring?
The Carers Telephone Befriending Service has been successfully supporting carers in Harborough District for many years - and now the service is available throughout Leicestershire.
How does the service work?
The befriending service is run by experienced, trained volunteers, who understand the issues associated with caring. One of our volunteers will ring you once a week to talk about anything you like - whether you fancy a light-hearted chat or a chance to 'get it all off your chest' - depending on what kind of a week you've had!
You don't have to wait in for a phone call either - if you're not at home, we'll simply try calling you the following week.
In a nutshell, the service is like having a supportive friend at the end of the phone - when it's convenient for you!
If you'd like to find out more please call us on 0845 689 9510 (calls charged at local rates).
Are you a carer who's already made use of the Telephone Befriending Service?
If so, please could you let us know what you think of the service - your feedback will help us to continually improve the service and spread the word to other carers.
