Australian Red Cross TeleCHAT
Sometimes it can be difficult for people to get out to social activities and living alone means they not always have someone to talk to. TeleCHAT calls provide a connection to the community. Friendly volunteers call participants at an agreed time, generally once a week, to share a conversation and catch up. Participants are matched with volunteers based on their interests, hobbies and availability.
