Helping from Home
A little bit of patience and a listening ear are the main requirements of a telephone befriender. From the comfort of your own home you could really make a difference to the life of someone who is lonely and in need of a chat.
One organisation currently looking for trainee befrienders is Murray Hall Community Trust, based in Tipton. The organisation promotes health and wellbeing by enabling and supporting people in need to overcome the challenges of inequality; by advocating on their behalf; facilitating empowerment; pioneering new solutions and delivering innovative services and stronger communities.
