Chatty Hull Befriender Service

Absolutely Cultured teamed up with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind and Hull City Council to offer a Chatty Hull Befriender Service. This project was established to support local vulnerable residents in search of companionship.

Those feeling isolated or anxious as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, could call the “Hull Helpline” on 01482 300 307 and register a need for the service.

Requests that came through were uploaded as shifts on our system, and our wonderful volunteers can signed up to return calls; offering friendly conversation in a safe and healthy manner.

At the same time that our Chatty Hull Befriender calls weretaking place, trained Hull and East Yorkshire Mind volunteers were also on standby, to offer additional support if necessary.
