Our wonderful volunteer team offer support and telephone befriending which is ideal for anyone who is looking to make new friends with like-minded people from the comfort of their own home.

We have found that a good chat with someone once a week really improves social isolation and wellbeing - essential for us all!

Would you like a regular friendly chat at the same time every week with one of our volunteers? Apply now using the Focus Telephone Befriending System below. You can fill it in yourself or ask a family member or friend to do it for you. Once complete we will match you with a suitable volunteer and schedule the calls... yes it's as easy as that!

What our befriendees say about the service: 

Marie says, ‘A weekly phone call can make all the difference. Give it a go there are people out there who care and Focus has made such a difference in my life’.
