We are delighted to say that AgeUK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin has now launched this new service.
Reach offers older and old LGBT+ people a regular confidential phone call with a friendly volunteer. You might want to talk about what’s on your mind or simply talk about what you’ve been getting up to. AgeUK has worked with SAND to train volunteers who can listen. They’ll match you up with a likeminded person who has similar interests or hobbies.
The service is free of charge and can be accessed for as long or as little time as you need.
How Reach telephone calls can benefit you or someone you know:
- It can help to reduce the feeling of loneliness
- It provides you with a regular and consistent volunteer to speak to
- It can help you to build confidence to attend social activities you would like to reengage with or may have not done before.
- It provides a vital connection to someone that can signpost you to additional support.
How do I contact Reach?
