Has lockdown left you bored and lonely? How about lifting your spirits by volunteering? Befriending by phone helps you and the person you call, as a weekly chat can help you both reconnect with the world!

We are looking for volunteers aged 18 plus, to join our Covid-19 Telephone Befriending Service, which offers help and support to the most vulnerable members of our communities at this unsettling time, through conversations.

By helping to reduce fears for those experiencing anxiety and uncertainty, our telephone project offers a friendly voice at a moment of increased isolation and loneliness.

Make a difference to someone’s day …an hour of your day goes a long way! For further details contact BAVO, T: 01656 810400 or email: or visit our Community Companions page here.
