WECIL’s New Check in and Chat Service!
WECIL is launching a new Telephone Check in and Chat Service for members of our community in response to the Covid-19 crisis and funded by Bristol City Council.
The service is available to any self-identifying disabled adults, those who are shielding and/or have long term health conditions who are feeling isolated and would like someone to talk to.
Our Telefriend volunteers will make weekly calls, of around 20 minutes, to a member of our community for a period of six weeks. Speaking to the same person each week, the Telefriend volunteer will make friendly conversation, lend a supportive ear and signpost to services.
We are currently looking for both volunteers and referrals for the service.
