Service description:
Age UK “Call in Time” service comprises “Friendship Calls” and “Good Day Calls”

- A Friendship Call is a weekly phone call (lasting normally around 20 minutes) from a trained and supported corporate volunteer.
- A Good Day call is a short call several times a week, at a time that suits you best, for an initial period of 8 weeks. This can provide a little reassurance when people most need it – for example, if an older person has experienced a recent bereavement or just come out of hospital.

Call in Time would benefit those who need additional support a telephone friendship could provide.

These people could be
- Living alone
- Living away from family and friends
- Socially isolated or lonely
- Recently bereaved
- Caring for someone
- Isolated from their immediate community due to physical disability or health problems
- Recently out of hospital or experiencing significant change to their daily living arrangements.
