I have been volunteering as a telephone welfare call and befriender for 1 week and have been contacting elderly and vulnerable individuals in colchester by telephone to check on their welfare and have a chat! Social isolation and loneliness has been a huge problem with COVID-19, so telephone calls have been making a huge different to those who need to speak to someone. I will be doing the calls every week for 6 weeks.
