Friendship Calls and Good Day Calls
Our 'Call in Time' service comprises 'Friendship Calls' and 'Good Day Calls':
A Friendship Call is a weekly phone call (lasting normally around 20 minutes) from a trained and supported corporate volunteer.
A Good Day Call is a short call several times a week, at a time that suits you best, for an initial period of 8 weeks. This can provide a little reassurance when people most need it - for example, if an older person has experienced a recent bereavement or just come out of hospital.
How Call in Time works
Call in Time is primarily for people over the age of 60 who would benefit from the additional support a telephone friendship could provide.
These people could be:
Living away from their family and friends
Socially isolated or lonely
Caring for someone
Isolated from their immediate community due to physical disability or health problems
Recently out of hospital or experiencing a significant change to their daily living arrangements
Assessed as benefiting from the service
Call in Time works with local partners to ensure people can receive the service or services most appropriate to their needs.
Note: Call in Time is a corporate volunteer programme only, and we can't accept members of the public as volunteers.
