The Emotional Support and Wellbeing Project provides telephone support to the residents of Greenwich suffering from the continuing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The work that this project has carried out since March has been a lifeline to many residents and continues to be so as the uncertainty and challenges of living through this pandemic affects people’s lives in so many ways.

Skilled trained volunteers provide telephone support to those in need of friendship, reassurance and connection during this situation.

All volunteers are trained to not only offer a friendly ear but also to identify additional services required and to signpost and refer individuals to other organisations. This project provides emotional support and pathways to meet the changing needs of vulnerable residents in Greenwich.

To refer either yourself or an individual you are working with to this service, please get in contact:
