What is ‘In Touch’?
This is keeping in touch with a service user mainly over the telephone. Rarely someone will prefer email contact in which case this will be with someone with a HNG email address. The purpose is:
• To lift spirits by providing contact
• To encourage them to stay active and busy
• To let them know about services that may be able to help them
A phone call can make a huge difference to people in Islington who are lonely, having to self isolate or have difficulty getting out and about, and who may not talk to anyone else from one day to the next.
Loneliness can take many forms – people can feel lonely even if they live with someone if that person doesn’t seem to understand them. Some people may only see paid care workers who don’t have time to get to know their interests. You can bring out their personality and interests.
We have lots of men that need supporting, but we have fewer male In-Touch volunteers than women. So if you're a man we are particularly interested in hearing from you.
