Check in and Chat is a telephone service for all adults who may be experiencing isolation or loneliness.
We know that loneliness and isolation can affect anyone in life, whatever their age and whatever their family situation. It is possible to feel alone even if you have friends and family around you, sometimes it really helps to talk to someone new who can just listen and support.
■ A regular phone call, at least once a fortnight at a suitable time.
■ Clients and Companions are carefully matched, though they won’t meet face to face as this is a telephone befriending service.
■ All of our Companions are carefully recruited and undergo thorough checks and references (including Criminal Records Bureau checks).
■ A WAG check and chat co-ordinator will call each client four times a year to check things are going well.
