Sandwell Together Keeping in touch by phone or Facetime

 

Sandwell Together

Keeping in touch by phone or Facetime

  • For people who are socially isolating (either short term or for the duration of the corona emergency). This includes vulnerable people in care homes where contact time has been reduced
  • Contact can vary from:
    • a regular short call to keep in touch and check that things are ok
    • longer chats to pass the time of day and reduce social isolation
  • Free and confidential service
  • A listening ear with links back to other sources of support including the council emergency helpline and the Community Offer
  • The phone be-friending service will be delivered by a team of volunteers, co-ordinated by Sandwell Advocacy, and operates flexibly Monday – Saturday 10.00am – 8.00pm
  • Contact can be made by phone, Skype or Facetime

To receive support or to make a referral please contact SCVO on 0121 517 0475 during office hours Monday – Friday or email support@scvo.info 

Sandwell Advocacy, working in partnership with SCVO
