Friendly Call Cork is indebted to our wonderful volunteers. We wish to acknowledge the great work of volunteers on Friendly Call Cork. Without our volunteers, it would not be possible to offer this valuable service to our many clients. Our Friendly Call volunteers brighten the days of over eighty individuals with a daily phone call.

Friendly Call Cork is a free phone call service for people living alone and is available in the Cork City area to older people and anyone feeling lonely, isolated or vulnerable.

Friendly Call Cork operates 5 days a week; Monday to Friday and will check that all is well with you or a loved one.
