The service is to provide a regular friendly telephone call to our members who feel socially isolated, providing a listening ear and friendly conversation. Volunteers will be given guidance on how to deliver this service. The volunteer will record the call on a log sheet, this will also have space for any concerns or need for information the recipient may have.
