National support groups/Advice lines

  • Age Cymru
  • Check-in-and-chat telephone service for the over 70’s in Wales who live alone.  It is hoped that this will help provide some reassurances to older people, answer queries and link people to local services and support during the Coronavirus outbreak.  These are potentially difficult times for many older people, especially those living alone who may not have anyone to share their concerns. Others may just want to have a chat about what they saw on television last night. Hopefully, this initiative will help older people cope with some of the challenges arising from the Coronavirus outbreak.
  • MIND
  • Samaritans
  • LGBTQ+
  • Silent 999
  • Barod – advice regarding drug and alcohol dependency during Covid19
