Befriending Service - 12 week telephone service

by Independent Age Claimed

At Independent Age, we want to make the UK a better place to grow older. We understand the issues faced in later life, we campaign for change, and we provide support people can rely on – from award-winning information guides to a network of volunteers helping us to beat loneliness and isolation across the UK.

Our free Friendship Services give older people the chance to receive a regular call from one of our wonderful volunteers and, over time, form a genuine, trusting bond. A regular telephone call from an Independent Age volunteer can make all the difference. If you would like to make a referral please contact Claire Alexander on claire.alexander@independentage.org for Glasgow and the West of Scotland or Chris Salt on chris.salt@independentage.org for Edinburgh and the East of Scotland.

If you need advice or would like to find out more about our services, call us on 0800 319 6789, Monday to Friday, 8.30am-6.30pm, and Saturday, 9am-1pm, or email your query to advice@independentage.org.
