The Silver Line partners with the RAF Benevolent Fund to provide free, regular, group friendship telephone calls which enable up to six like-minded older people with links to the RAF to chat to each other from the comfort of their own homes. They offer an easy way to connect with people who have an RAF background, to make new friends and share stories and experiences of their life in the RAF.
How does it work?
Connecting to a telephone group is simple. An operator will call you, you pick up your telephone, and you then join the call. You can use a landline or your mobile phone and there is no charge. All calls are free for participants and last for an hour once a week.
Join a Group
If you are an RAF veteran or the partner, spouse or widow(er) of an RAF veteran , you can join one of these groups to connect with other like-minded people across the country via the telephone. All calls are facilitated by our trained volunteers, making them safe and friendly to take part in.
To find out more, or to join or refer someone who would benefit from these calls, please call 0300 222 5703 Mon – Thur 9.30 – 16.30, Fri 9.30 – 16.00 or email us on [email protected]
