Friendly Call Cork is a free phone call service for people living alone and is available in the Cork City area to older people and anyone feeling lonely, isolated or vulnerable. The service specifically targets people with chronic illness or anyone who cannot engage in an active way in the wider community. The Friendly Caller will chat to clients about their day and check on how they are feeling, providing friendship, security and helping clients feel safer at home.
Please feel free to forward on email to your contacts. Also, if you are aware of someone who could benefit from a daily phone contact, please refer on to our service.
Friendly Call Cork is part of Cork City Partnership and is part funded by HSE South. The service is coordinated by a part-time Development Worker and a team of eager, enthusiastic, empathic volunteers.
We are currently recruiting Volunteers for our Friendly Call Service
