Wellbeing and friendship services

Age UK Shropshire Telford and Wrekin

Age UK Shropshire Telford Wrekin has many services offering companionship and support for older people. Volunteers can visit you in your own home, provide a regular telephone call or accompany you to social activities in your neighbourhood, building friendships and sharing experiences.

Home Visiting Service

Volunteers can visit older people on a regular basis to prevent loneliness and isolation. They can become a new friend who will listen, care and offer confidential support. Volunteers can provide regular contact and encourage activities including going for walks, playing games, watching a film or sharing hobbies.

Telephone Buddy Service

This service provides regular telephone calls to older people who enjoy a friendly chat. Weekly calls can be made by a different volunteer each week. Volunteers enjoy sharing experiences and offering a supportive listening ear.
