Urgent - Volunteers needed for phone befriending service!
We are looking for friendly and confident volunteers to join our new Telephone Befriending Service to provide a welcome voice and emotional support to local people living with sight loss during this critical period of isolation.
We are following government advice regarding social distancing and have taken steps to support the safety and welfare of our clients and team. All drop-ins, socials, 1-1 face-to-face sessions and home visits for our main services are suspended until further notice.
We will continue to provide information, advice and guidance services over the phone and email. Our Community Sight Loss Advisors are set up to work remotely and can be contacted on our usual office numbers and are available to answer your questions.
We are working hard on supporting you to stay in touch with your loved ones, friends and family during what, for many, will be a difficult time. We will be contacting many of you by phone and letter over the coming weeks.
Our contact numbers remain unchanged
