Whilst we are very clear with those that refer to us, and to the participants themselves, that the service we offer is a Friendship Call. A friendly voice and a listening ear, we are more than aware that our volunteers and staff go above and beyond to enable us to provide the amazing service that we do.
We currently have two ladies receiving regular calls from Volunteers, both unfortunately have a diagnosis of cancer. Our two volunteers have stayed with these ladies throughout their ups and downs and provided that light relief that the ladies need, a reliable, non-judgemental conversation. The volunteers and the ladies are proving to be an inspiration and just goes to prove we are so much more than just a call.
We as a service check in on our Volunteers often as we know that these are not easy calls to make sometimes.
