Even in a small close knit community like Guernsey, social isolation exists. Partners and friends pass on, family members don’t always live close by or are caught up in their busy lives. Neighbours aren’t always interested in getting to know you and if you’re unable to get out, or if you’re unwell, it can be hard to meet people.

Caring Caller is a service that St John provides for people who may live alone or are just feeling lonely or isolated. Our team of friendly volunteers phone clients regularly to check in that everything is ok, or just for a friendly chat.  The service is free to access and entirely funded by donations.
