At Staying Well we believe that no one should feel alone.
Isolation has never been such a concern and risk as it currently is but a chat with a Volunteer Befriender can make all the difference to someone who is lonely.
Right now we are working with volunteers to provide a Staying Well Telephone Befriending Service for adults in Calderdale who want someone to talk to regularly or just want to to hear a friendly voice.

Or give us a call on 01422 392767 if you would like to be matched up to a volunteer who can give you a regular call to check in and brighten your day.
Volunteering can give a great sense of purpose and reward.
It’s one of your 5 Ways to Wellbeing and can also help you keep to your own routine during lockdown or self isolation.
Volunteers are needed right now to help with:
- Befriending phone calls
- Medicine deliveries
- Other help like dog walking or helping people to get online.
