We’ve been really pleased by the huge response from prospective volunteers. 6000 people requested information packs or downloaded them, and we will have trained more than 1000 Silver Line Friends by May. Thank you for your patience and we will be in touch with everyone as soon as possible. We have now introduced the idea of ‘virtual pairs’. This means that a Silver Line Friend can call an older person from their own home or office, individually, but have the support from another volunteer who is also working remotely. All the calls are recorded, safeguarding both the volunteer and the caller, and are completely free of charge to them. The charity pays for the calls.
If you are interested in becoming a Silver Line Friend or supporting us in other ways such as helping with administration, then please get in touch with us by email, contacting [email protected]. If you would like to help us raise much-needed funds, please email us at [email protected]
