What is telephone befriending?

As we get older, we may find we spend more time on our own. This can sometimes feel lonely, boring or make us miss friends or family.

If you or someone you know is missing the joy of regular conversation, Mid Devon Mobility can help.

We offer free telephone friendship services so you can enjoy chatting with someone over the phone, all from the comfort of your own home.

Whether you’d like to speak to someone every week, or just want to talk when the need strikes, we’re here to help.

If you would like to become a telephone befriender please call us on 01884 242099. We are always seeking additional volunteers to help with the demand upon our services.
