LGBT+ Telefriending Service
A weekly friendly call for Older LGBTI+ People
About the LGBTI+ Telefriending Service
Telefriending is a great opportunity for older community members to connect with another person who identifies as LGBTI+ to share joy, laughter including mutual connection and support by telephone. Volunteers are trained and garda vetted offering a confidential telephone call once per week.
Sometimes through the process of life, older persons may experience loneliness and isolation as they age.
At LGBT Ireland, we want to value Older LGBTI+ people in our community so we created the Telefriending Service!
Telefriending is an opportunity for older members to connect with another person who also identifies as LGBTI+ to share joy, laughter and receive mutual connection and support by telephone.
Really warm and receptive call,
feels like it will be a good match!
Had a lovely chat with my LGBT+ volunteer, she was a lovely person to talk to – excellent in fact.
