Telephone Befriending Volunteers During Covid-19

Due to pausing our in-person visits because of the high risks of Coronavirus in the UK, we have moved all our befriending visits to phone calls. We want to extend this service to anyone in Reading who is over 55 and living alone.

This means we need you! If you already have a DBS check and you are willing to call an isolated person who is over 55 just to talk, we will provide online training and support for you.

Here’s our Volunteer Application Form. Once you have filled it in please email it to

Any queries please call 0118 956 7000, when asked select option 2 and leave a message. The answering machine is being checked regularly and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
