If you are feeling lonely and want someone to talk to, Carer Support Dorset’s Here to Talk befriending service offers regular phone calls with one of our volunteers on a weekly or fortnightly basis. This provides one-to-one support over the telephone to help build mental wellbeing and reduce isolation. These can be arranged at a time that fits around you and your caring responsibilities.

If you are interested in being connected to one of our friendly volunteers, phone us on 0800 368 8349, (Monday–Thursday 9.30am-4.30pm, Friday 9.30am-4pm) or email admin@carersupportdorset.co.uk

If would like to volunteer as a befriender you can find out more on our volunteering page.
