Our befriending service - it's good to talk! 

The befriending service is run by specially trained volunteers, who make regular calls to people who may not be able to attend our other social groups, or who are feeling isolated. We can also link you in with our Friends on the Phone scheme, where we can connect you to a small group of other people, who decide between themselves when and how often they are going to chat to each other. It’s a great way to keep in touch and make new friends. Please ring the office on 01924 215555 to find out more.

We are always interested to hear from people who would like to become telephone befrienders. For an informal chat about what the role involves, please contact Nicola Ellis (Finance and Outreach Manager) on 01924 215555 or by email: operations@wdsa.org.uk.
