Chatterbox Action Against Loneliness Programme
|Organisation||Omega, The National Association for End of Life Care|
Chatterbox is a free, confidential, short-term telephone befriending service. It is designed to support those who are lonely and isolated due to their caring role, bereavement, age, or life-limiting and end of life challenges. The service prioritises people over 75.
Clients are carefully matched to a dedicated volunteer Befriender who will call them on a weekly basis to provide emotional support and help finding additional services, information and social groups etc.
Omega is an end of life charity working hard to raise standards in end of life care by supporting caregivers looking after someone with a terminal illness, people who are themselves end of life, and those who have been bereaved. We prioritise those aged over 75 and still caring or bereaved.
