Telephone befriending service

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service has launched a telephone befriending service.

We are doing all that we can to help those in need during this period of isolation and

thought you may be interested in a

telephone call from one of our staff, just for a chat.

We understand that a lot of people may be feeling lonely and

may be missing regular visits from friends and family. In order

to combat this loneliness we have launched a telephone

befriending service. If you would like a regular phone call from

us to have a friendly chat and to just keep in touch, then please

call us and let us know. We will ask for your name and

telephone number, and one of our volunteers will call you at

least once a week.
