Welcome to Keep Talking Services
We are a health and social care student telephone befriending service created to reduce loneliness in our local community.
What began initially as 1 student calling a lonely individual who was unable to leave their home due to the first COVID restrictions, has now blossomed into over 25 health and social care students from different fields making over 1000 calls to individuals suffering with loneliness across Kent.
We have branched out into working with students from across the educational and humanities related studies. Unsure if what you're studying fits in our service? Get in contact with us.
We welcome ALL health and social care students to join us in making an impact to the wellbeing of others with one of our main priorities being the reduction of loneliness.
Not only do students gain the opportunity to brighten up the day of an individual but the benefits are endless, our students gain a new sense of confidence, development in their communication skills and are able to access unique training opportunities which they otherwise may not have had the chance to gain in their current practice.
