Older Persons' Telephone Befriending Service

Not everyone is able to get out and about. For people living on their own, it can sometimes seem like a lonely life. That's why we launched our Befriending and Get Active Service.

Working in partnership with Age UK and Disability One Voice, our trained staff and tenant volunteers call elderly and disabled tenants twice a week to have a chat and see how they're doing. It's also a great opportunity for our volunteers to check that they're okay and that they're getting all the help and support they need at home. 

Based with the Befriendling supervisor, volunteers phone residents once a week to check they are ok, find out if they need any support and provide a range of information.

How you can help

We need volunteers to spend half a day phoning our customers.

Private Counselling Service

The aim of The Private Counselling Service is to provide counselling therapy for Wolverhampton Homes tenants living with poor mental health. Providing a Private Counselling Service for Wolverhampton Homes tenants is a direct expense to the company however the bigger picture shows an investment in our tenants. The end goal is to keep individuals within their home being able to sustain their tenancy and maintain optimum mental health well-being.

With the up and coming Universal Credit and poor mental health on the increase, this service will greatly impact the sustainment of tenancies. Over the last 18 months a large number of tenants with poor mental health, who were at great risk of losing their tenancies have been supported, some of those required a particular type of "talking therapy". These tenants are still waiting to be seen, Wolverhampton Homes will be an example to other ALMOs and housing associations to invest capital not only into bricks and mortar but also in the lives of the individuals who hold the tenancies.

Telephone Befriending Scheme for people with disabilites

Not everyone is able to get out and about. For people living on their own, it can sometimes seem like a lonely life. That's why we launched our Befriending and Get Active Service.

Working in partnership with Age UK and Disability One Voice, our trained staff and tenant volunteers call elderly and disabled tenants twice a week to have a chat and see how they're doing. It's also a great opportunity for our volunteers to check that they're okay and that they're getting all the help and support they need at home

How you can help

We need volunteers to make those precious calls. Two hours of your time might seem like such a small thing, but to someone living on their own it's possibly the greatest gift you could give. Befrienders work to a rota and can volunteer once every four to eight weeks, whatever best suits you.

We couldn’t do this on our own. That’s why we’ve teamed up with local businesses and our contractors who are giving something back to help make our city, our communities and our estates even better places to live.

Visit the current projects page to find out how we're giving back and, if you can pledge to help, please fill in the form at the bottom of the page:
