Telephone Befriending service

Date added: 27th March 2020

Hastings Voluntary Action are launching a Telephone Befriending service.

The idea of the service is that any adults who are currently socially isolated or shielding from the Corona Virus can sign up to receive regular telephone calls from a friendly volunteer helping to ease boredom and loneliness and hopefully create new friendships. We aim to match you to a Volunteer Befriender with similar interests to your own and these volunteers will also be able to direct you towards help and advice on a range of issues should you need it.

To sign up follow this link and register your details or if you donít have a computer and need help then simply call 444010 and one of our HVA staff will be happy to help you to register.
