About the LGBT+ 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.

We Support Older LGBT+ People...

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!

We Share A Lot of Joy and Laughter...

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.
