Birchfield Big Local has set up a free, confidential telephone service for people aged 50 and above living in the Birchfield area. Called Birchfield Telephone Befriending Buddies this volunteer-based service is there for older adults who would appreciate a regular friendly chat or who feel worried, lonely, or isolated. Volunteers will call once a week at an agreed time and date to offer a listening ear and share some time to chat about people’s interests and hobbies.
