Our Telephone Befriending service aims to provide a regular friendly phone-call from a trained volunteer for companionship, a listening ear and support to isolated Carers living in Derbyshire (excluding Derby city) who are in need of social contact.
Do you want to support carers within their local communities to feel confident and able to access support, interests and to reduce isolation and falling victim to crime/fraud ?
We are currently running alternative Support and Cuppa & Chat groups online, with some in person groups. All activities are for Unpaid Carers registered with Derbyshire Carers Association only.
Are you a Carer or concerned about a Carer during the Covid-19 crisis?
or email email@example.com or refer online via the link below
We respond to all calls and emails daily and will arrange for one of the team to call you back to discuss how we can help you. Our Team are also contacting Derbyshire’s most vulnerable Carers to review their current situation, address any concerns and make sure that Carers and their families are connected to support services. These include services such as food deliveries, prescription collections and befriending.
