Telephone Befriending scheme for people in isolation Posted on 31 Mar 2020

There is a new volunteer telephone befriending scheme providing emotional support between people in isolation in the Hastings area.

The scheme is to help reduce loneliness in people ‘shielding’ or self isolating and can work both ways as with those with time on their hands becoming a telephone befriender can give them something positive to focus on whilst for those with anxiety, no one to talk to etc it can provide a lifeline of regular calls and signposting to useful support that they may need.

To sign up for to receive calls people can follow the link below or alternatively just call 444010 and one of our HVA staff will complete the registration for them.
