Friendly Calls Program
(by the Canadian Red Cross)
Available to adults across BC, the Friendly Calls program is a free-to-access phone-based program that aims to help address heightened feelings of loneliness and isolation.
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.
If you or someone you know would benefit from this program, please call 1-833-474-0360 or visit:
