The Listening Line is a phone service for people aged 50+.

People can call and speak to a friendly operator who will listen and - where appropriate - give advice about local services which the caller might like to approach for support.

The Listening line offers up to 30 minutes on a call, once a week. 

"Having a weekly chat has made a huge difference to me. If I could buy her a bunch of flowers I would, as she is so caring she has made a real difference to me".  (Listening Line caller).

From Monday 21st September 2020 til December 2020 we will be operating Monday to Friday, 10-4pm.

To speak to a Listening Line operator, please phone 0114 312 2209 or if you would prefer us to phone you, email [email protected] and we will arrange a call-back.
