Re-engage Call Companion Service


About

Whether they’re a friend, relative, neighbour, service user or patient, we’re here to help.

You can feel reassured by our strong track record in supporting older people.

We’ve been dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation for more than 50 years and 95% of the older people we work with say they now have something to look forward to.

How does it work?

Our call companion's idea is very simple: a volunteer call companion calls the same older person between two and four times a month at a mutually agreed time for an informal chat. Calls will last for around 30 minutes
