Connect Newham

Connect Newham is a service delivered by a consortium of trusted local voluntary organisations

If you live in Newham and are aged 18 or over, live alone, or care for someone on your own, and you are feeling lonely or isolated for whatever reason, Connect Newham can help

How it works:

It is easy, safe and all from the comfort of your own home.

1. Over the phone you can tell them about yourself and decide how many calls you would like –from 3 up to 20.

2. You get matched with a fully trained Connect Newham volunteer for a weekly or fortnightly chat over the phone at a time that’s convenient for you.

You can call Connect Newham on 020 3954 3224 or email [email protected] (9am-5pm on weekdays)
