Sandwell Together is a partnership between Sandwell Advocacy and SCVO delivering a befriending services for people who are socially islolating (either short term or for the duration of the corona emergency). This includes vulnerable people in care homes where contact time has been reduced.
Contact can vary from:
- a regular short call to keep in touch and check that things are ok
- longer chats to pass the time of day and reduce social isolation
- It is free and confidential service
- A listening ear with links back to other sources of support including the council emergency helpline and the Community Offer
The phone be-friending service will be delivered by a team of volunteers, co-ordinated by Sandwell Advocacy, and operates flexibly Monday – Saturday 10.00am – 8.00pm. Contact can be made by phone, Skype or Facetime
