Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust

Healthy n Happy's STAY IN TOUCH Telephone Friendship Circles are small friendly groups of people supported by a trained volunteer. Criteria is simple: resident of Cambuslang or Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire, any adult age, feeling isolated or lonely, and motivated to make new friends to broaden your social circle. The circles meet by group telephone call, connected through the volunteer, for an hour, same day and time each week. Calls include talking together about your interests, hobbies, family, quizzes, reminiscing, whatever the group wants to chat about, just like you would do if you went out for a cuppa or a pint.
Registering is simple - phone 0141 641 5236 and ask for Janice, or email her on transforminglives@healthynhappy.org.uk

Information for volunteers

Healthy n Happy's STAY IN TOUCH Telephone Friendship Circles are small friendly groups of people supported by a trained volunteer. The friends are resident of Cambuslang or Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire, any adult age, feeling isolated or lonely, and motivated to make new friends to broaden your social circle. The circles meet by group telephone call, connected through the volunteer, for an hour, same day and time each week. Calls include talking together about interests, hobbies, family, quizzes, reminiscing, whatever the group wants to chat about, just like they would do if you went out for a cuppa or a pint.

The role of the volunteer is to keep the group safe, to facilitate the conversation making sure everyone who wants to talk, can do so, and to help the group move forward as a genuine group of friends who no longer need support from the service.
Applying is simple - phone 0141 641 5236 and ask for Janice, or email the team on transforminglives@healthynhappy.org.uk .
