Absolutely Cultured has teamed up with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind and 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.
Requests that come through will be uploaded as shifts on our system, and our wonderful volunteers can sign up and return calls; offering friendly conversation in a safe and healthy manner.
At the same time that our Chatty Hull Befriender calls are taking place, trained Hull and East Yorkshire Mind volunteers will be on standby, just in case additional support is necessary.
The “Hull Helpline” is open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 6pm, and you can specify the best time and number for befriender calls when you register your details.
