Telephone Buddy

TELEPHONE BUDDY

 

You will be buddied up with a volunteer who will commit to a regular time slot at a mutually agreeable time to contact you.  The volunteer will call you for a casual friendly chat at the same time each week for up to one hour.  We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible to help people self-isolating to stay connected to people.  This is a fun, safe and relaxed way to continue to provide support during the closure of face-to-face services.

 

We are currently unable to deliver this service.  We will resume this service as soon as restrictions allow.

 

If you would like advice about money management or debt support, please see the ‘One to One Money and Debt Support’ page.

We are continuing to provide Money and Debt Support.

 

Our Money and Debt adviser, Lee, will carry out a detailed assessment of your budget and help you make the most of your money.  This can include help on switching gas and electric companies to get a cheaper deal or getting a better deal on your phone.

 

We are continuing to provide Peer Mentoring.

 

WHAT IS A PEER MENTORING?

 

Peer mentoring is form of mentorship that takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience and a person who is new to that experience or requires additional support. It is a relationship based on mutual learning and growth, with the aim of supporting people to achieve a sense of control and empowerment. 

 

We are continuing to provide a counselling service.

 

Have you been dealing with issues that you’ve not been able to properly discuss with friends or family?  Perhaps counselling can help.

 

George House Trust's qualified volunteers provide counselling in a safe and confidential way, where anyone using our services can talk about difficulties they may be experiencing in their lives.

 

In line with Government guidance, our staff are currently working remotely.

 

We are providing one to one support, advice and information by phone or online – all you need to do is email talk@ght.org.uk or call 0161 274 4499. One of the team will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

We will continue to keep you updated by email, on social media and here on our website as restrictions change or are eased.
