The Companion Line is here to support people who may benefit from a regular call from one of our volunteers. Not having someone to talk to regularly can be lonely, particularly if you are used to sharing your home and time with others. This service is for anyone over the age of 18, living in Herefordshire or Worcestershire.
How we can help
Our companion line offers you a regular chat with a friendly volunteer. Whether you want to discuss any issues which are concerning you or simply talk about what you’ve been doing, we have someone who can listen. We’ll match you up with a likeminded person who has similar interests or hobbies to you or the person you are referring and they will offer a regular phone call.
This service is free of charge and can be accessed for as long or as little time as you need.
How the companion line can benefit you or someone you know

- It provides people with a regular and consistent volunteer to speak to
- It helps people to build confidence to attend social activities they may not have done before.

Once we have your details we can match you with a volunteer who can offer regular phone calls.
