In these difficult times Reach and Connect Haringey are offering telephone friendship to people in Haringey who would like to receive regular weekly calls from a friendly and supportive volunteer. The calls last approximately 30 minutes, and take place on the same day, at the same time, each week.
Reach and Connect Haringey matches older people and volunteers carefully, to ensure they have some common interests and friendships. These are reviewed regularly, to ensure that both parties find them enjoyable.
This is not a counselling service, and no specialist advice or support is provided. Recipients and volunteers never meet, ensuring the safety of both.
