Connect Call


Connect Call – Telephone Befriending Service

Connect Call at Belford Mill aims to improve socialisation within the community by connecting people for a chat. We aim to signpost people to services and groups which would have a positive impact. Our fantastic team of volunteers provide a free, confidential service offering friendship and support to people in East Ayrshire who may live alone and experience isolation or are just in need of a friendly chat.

We are seeking more volunteers who will engage in a friendly chat and pass on any relevant information to our clients. Training is provided in house and by shadowing experienced connect callers. Key skills are empathy and a willingness to listen to others.
