Telephone Support

How it works

We provide support to anyone over the age of eighteen years irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, religion, or ethnic background.

Assist provides a one to one telephone befiending service to people who are lonely; people who are recovering from illness or accident; and people who need help to get back 'on their feet' after a setback in life and do not require direct 1-2-1 support

Our volunteers get alongside people who need encouragement, friendship or advice to help them get through a difficult time because of depression, bereavement, breakdown in family relationships or other stress full life event.
