Caring can be very rewarding, but it can also feel isolating or challenging at times. If you would like to talk to someone who understands the issues facing carers, you can request a series of calls from our friendly trained callers.
The Listening Support Service offers a series of phone calls with someone who understands the ups and downs of caring and who can provide a listening ear.
Whether you want to discuss some of the issues you are facing as a carer, or just want to chat, our friendly, trained callers are here to listen.
What you can expect
Our callers will phone you once a week/fortnight, up to four times, for a chance to chat. Calls take place around the same day and time each week/fortnight, and last around 30 minutes. The callers (who are all trained volunteers) can provide emotional support and are able to suggest services to contact for more support, but they cannot give advice or counselling.
How do I sign up?
To sign up to receive these calls, we will need you to complete a short form to tell us a bit about you.
