Who we are
Careline is a free telephone befriending service for people living in the Derbyshire Dales and East Staffordshire. We aim to make people's lives better by calling those who feel in need of support - they may be elderly, less able to get out, feeling lonely or isolated. We offer friendship to the people that we call and peace of mind to their families and friends. With our team of 80+ volunteers who make the calls, we provide greater social interaction for our members, helping to give them the confidence to remain living independently. We make calls every day of the year, including weekends and holidays. Our service is completely free to use. Although we receive some funding, as a local charity we rely on donations and support from our community to keep this valuable service running.
