SilverTalk is a telephone befriending service delivered through Karbon Homes that is offered to Karbon and non-Karbon tenants. The service is set up to help relieve loneliness and social isolation.
Trained volunteers provide a weekly social chat for up to 30 minutes. Volunteers and service users build up trusting relationships and both parties find the telephone calls rewarding and beneficial.
As well as a weekly chat, volunteers are able to signpost service users to other agencies and activities in their area.
