Befriending Scheme

Transcript:-

Hello.
Hope you are all well.

I know the current Coronavirus pandemic is difficult for us all. It is important to stay at home but it can be hard when we are unable to go out.
This can lead to some of us feeling isolated and alone with no one to communicate with and unable to speak to friends and family. If you are missing that social communication then we, at Zebra Access can help.

We can offer a Befriending scheme whereby a group of volunteers can contact you for a video chat remotely, for anyone who is feeling isolated or alone. We can even communicate via letter or text, or any other method you prefer. This service is to enable people to keep going and to get through this.

So, if you are feeling isolated, frustrated or stressed and in need of a chat or know someone who is then let me know and I'd be happy to put you in contact with one of our volunteers.

Make sure you all stay safe and stay home! Take care.
