Befriending Week 1 - 7 November 2023

Anyone can feel lonely, no matter what age you are.

Did you know Trent & Dove offers a befriending service to our residents?  We have trained volunteers who will give you a regular call to offer a listening ear and an opportunity to share a lovely chat over the phone. 

Christine Bettson, Trent & Dove Befriending and Wellbeing Officer, said:

Not everyone is able to get out of their homes as often as they would like, and having a friendly phone call to look forward to, can make a huge difference to your health and wellbeing.  Our Trent & Dove Befriending Volunteers are happy to give you a call. 

This is what some of our residents say about the service:

Lovely to chat, I really enjoyed it, it’s made me feel a lot better thank you.

You’re all amazing you lot!  I really appreciate the call!
