North Staffs LinkLine
North Staffs LinkLine is a Free To Receive telephone befriending service for the vulnerable over 55yrs age group that works closely with a steadily rising number of clients living within the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
We operate each week day morning from 9.30 to 12.30 with a dedicated team of volunteers, all of whom are Police DBS checked (formerly CRB) and fully trained undergoing a period of supervised Induction.
In listening and taking an active interest in the people we call, we build up a lasting, meaningful and trusting relationship which reduces the feeling of isolation and promotes well-being.
We are able to alert nominated contacts who could be a family member, a carer, friend, neighbour or even emergency services, to potential health problems when we are unable to contact our clients.
We aim to promote the potential for independent living, enabling clients to maintain a feeling of security and well-being that allows them to continue living at home in their own familiar community surroundings.
