Some people find they feel quite isolated as a carer, and don’t have the time or energy to meet up with other people.  Sheffield Carers Centre runs a Telephone Linkline (TLC) – if you find it difficult to leave the house, and would value a regular call, we can arrange for one of our trained volunteers to contact you fortnightly for a friendly chat and emotional support.

Some carers who receive regular calls from volunteers have commented:

“I so look forward to my call”

“The lady who calls me has become a real friend”

“My husband calls her my special carer!”
