It’s a quick and easy process to get signed up with Silver Talk, all we ask is that new service users complete an introductory application forms. One of our service managers will be in touch to complete the form over the phone. It will ask for a few details about health and hobbies and interests, so that we can match volunteers and users appropriately.
We will also ask for an emergency contact number, in case we are unable to get in touch with you and there is cause for concern.
All that we ask from users is that they let us know if they’re unavailable at their designated time that week, and that they are respectful to our volunteers.
You will then be matched with one of our trained volunteers, who will phone you on a weekly basis, at a set time that is convenient to you, for a social chat which can last up to 30 minutes.
