Launch of Rainbow call companion service

Added: 28/06/2022


Are you lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or otherwise part of the LGBT+ community? Are you aged over 75? Would you like a regular friendly chat over the phone with your very own call companion?

Rainbow call companions is a free service for older LGBT+ people who live alone and feel they would enjoy a friendly phone call every week or two with a volunteer who is also LGBT+

Following the success of our call companions service, we launched rainbow call companions: a free telephone befriending service for LGBT+ people who live alone and feel they would benefit from a friendly phone call every week or two. This is a service specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender plus (LGBT+) people aged over 75 who would like to speak to someone who’s also LGBT+.

Calls last for half an hour or so and you can chat about anything that interests you. What’s great is that the same volunteer phones you every time, so you can get to know each other and share stories and laughter – for as long as you both want.
