Or they may like to join a Silver Circle and take part in a regular group call on subjects that interest them. Silver Line Friends are volunteers who have contacted The Silver Line because they enjoy talking to older people. They are vetted and trained, and work in pairs for safeguarding and support. For those who want to connect online with others who have similar experiences, there are forums on a wide range of subjects that you can contribute to.
