Leitrim Calling is a free, friendly, confidential telephone call service reaching out to older and vulnerable persons in our communities. They have recently expanded their service to also include people of any age, who are feeling lonely or facing difficult challenges in their lives, both in the short term or longer term.
They operate in Drumshanbo Co. Leitrim. Clients receive a phonecall 3 mornings per week plus a call through our Friday evening slot. They also cover all Bank Holidays and throughout the Christmas period. They check on our client’s wellbeing, and if alerted to the fact that they require further supports, they work towards directing them to the appropriate service providers.
The clients provide 2 contacts of their choice. Therefore, if for any reason Leitrim Calling are unsuccessful in reaching a client on a given day, they ring the contact to ensure the client is well. No client is left unaccounted for. The service is primarily operated through a team of highly trained volunteers and more volunteers are currently being sourced to accommodate the rise in number of clients availing of the service.
Contact Details can be found in the service directory or in this leaflet
