Friendly Calls Program

12321_SB1_2728-(1).jpg The Friendly Calls program is a free-to-access phone-based program that aims to help address heightened feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many are experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Friendly Calls program pairs a trained Red Cross volunteer with someone who is feeling isolated or lonely, who may have limited social and family connections, or feels they could benefit from more social interaction.

Phone calls are scheduled on a weekly basis, or more frequently if you would like. They can be as quick as a two-minute conversation, or longer, if you wish.

The Friendly Calls program is available to adults across British Columbia and Yukon.

If you or someone you know would benefit from this program, please fill out this form.
