Community members will be linked with a friendly volunteer for 6 or 12 phone calls to help to tackle the isolation that people are feeling.
The service is aimed at disabled adults or those with long term health conditions who are feeling isolated and would like someone to talk to.
Coronavirus has disproportionately affected disabled people in many different ways including loneliness and isolation and an extended requirement to shield. We want to support our community to make positive connections by linking them with a friendly volunteer who will lend a supportive ear over the phone.
