Carers Telephone Befriending

Do you sometimes feel you don’t have anyone 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, once available just in Market Harborough, is now available throughout Leicestershire.

Take a look at our volunteer role description to find out more –

 How does the service work?

Switchboard-operator

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 01858 468543
