Middlesex Association for the Blind offers our telephone befriending service to clients who are blind or visually impaired. Our telephone befriender helps tackle feelings of isolation and loneliness. Our friendly team can be a vital link to the outside world and also signpost you to other services that may be helpful to you.

Maybe you’re feeling lonely, maybe you would just like someone new to talk to? Either way our team of telephone befrienders will always provide a listening ear. If you’re interested in using our telephone befriending service or would like to volunteer with our telephone befriending service, give us a call on 020 8423 5141


What does telephone befriending cost me?
