Careline offers a FREE telephone befriending service to people living in the Derbyshire Dales and Uttoxeter area.
We aim to make people’s lives better by calling those who feel in need of support – they may be elderly, less able to get out, recently bereaved, feeling lonely or isolated. We offer friendship to the people we call and peace of mind to their family and friends.
Our team of almost 80 volunteers make the befriending calls, providing greater social interaction for our members and helping to give them the confidence to remain living independently. We monitor people’s well-being and pass on useful information about the services available to them in their local community.
Our service is completely free and available every day of the year including weekends and bank holidays.
