Age UK Call in Time
Map for Age UK Call in Time
A free telephone friendship service run by Age UK.
Volunteers make weekly friendship calls to older people (aged 60 and over) who live on their own or are a carer for someone else, and who would benefit from a bit more contact.
The Call in Time service also offers "Good Day Calls": a short call several times a week, for around eight weeks, to older people that need a little reassurance. This might, for example, be when someone has recently experienced bereavement or just come out of hospital.
Both types of calls take place during office hours (9am to 5pm).
