Absolutely Cultured and Hull and East Yorkshire Mind have teamed up with Hull City Council to offer a Chatty Hull Befriender Service. This project has been established to support local vulnerable residents in search of companionship in these uncertain times.
If you’re feeling isolated or anxious as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, then you can call the “Hull Helpline” on 01482 300 307 and register a need for the service. The volunteers at Absolutely Cultured will then return calls; offering friendly conversations in a safe and healthy manner. At the same time, trained volunteers will be on standby, just in case additional support is necessary.
The “Hull Helpline” is open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, and you can specify the best time and number for befriender calls when you register your details.
