Epilepsy Wales - Telephone Support Group
|Author: Gareth Morris||Published: 13th May 2009 09:51|
Epilepsy Wales is to benefit from a new initiative - a free Telephone Support Group - for those people who cannot, for whatever reason, get to a local support group.
Community Network, the telephone conferencing charity, has been awarded a grant by Awards For All to help fund telephone support groups in Wales. These groups help those who, for whatever reason, are unable to attend ‘face-to-face' groups but would still like the opportunity to have a chat, share information or exchange ideas once a month as part of an informal ‘get together'.
What do I need? All you need is a telephone line and an hour to spare once a month for a chat! There will be no cost involved as all the calls will be paid for by the miracle of modern technology.
What do I do next? At the moment we are registering people's interests. Contact me, details below, and I will send you out a very brief questionnaire, or you can give me the details over the telephone or e-mail. This will ask for name, telephone number, and what day and time you would be available on a regular basis each month. I will then select the most convenient day/time for the majority of people - and register this with the telephone group.
How does it work?: You will get a call from the organiser, Community Network, at no cost whatsoever to you, which will enable you to talk and listen to everyone on the line - just as though you were at a group meeting. You will be able to stay on and chat, or just listen, for as long as you like, or until we all say our cheerio's until next month.
