We offer free calls to people in Haringey who would like to receive regular weekly contact 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.  

We match older people and volunteers carefully, to ensure they have some common interests and friendships are reviewed regularly, to ensure that both parties find them enjoyable.   

Our telephone friendship service is not a counselling service, and no specialist advice or support is provided.

Recipients and Volunteers never meet. This helps to ensure the safety of recipients and volunteers.

If you'd like to apply for this service or refer someone else, use our Telephone Friendship Application Form.
