One of the important services that CHEER (Concern & Help for East Elmbridge Retired) offers to our clients is the opportunity to have a regular home visit from a volunteer.  However in response to COVID19, we will be offering telephone befriending in view to returning to visiting again once restrictions are lifted.

A commitment of once a week to call an elderly person in their home for a chat can put an end to isolation and loneliness.

Many of our volunteers build up a friendship that sees both parties benefiting from the experience.

What skills do I need?

You must have the ability to empathise with older people together with good listening skills.

  • Older People
