BeConnected is back!
Although we are unable to deliver our usually packed programme of social events in person, we have been looking at ways that we can stay connected and help those that may feel lonely or isolated.
At least for now, the new BeConnected programme will focus on connecting with customers at home via group telephone calls. It is easy to take part, and each activity is open for people to phone on the day at the time of the activity – there is no need to book.
All you have to do is call the freephone number provided from your landline or your mobile phone to join in.
The activities are designed to be like those you would normally take part in, the only difference is that you will be taking part from the comfort and safety of your own home.
If you are not already a member, you can register here.
January, February and March 2021
To join an activity group call ring 0800 022 9009 on the day and time of the session and enter the pin 365040 when asked. This is the same phone number and pin for all activities.
Remember calls are free from a mobile or landline.
How it works
- Call the group telephone call number 0800 022 9009 on the allotted day and time from your phone (mobile or landline).
- When prompted, enter the pin 365040 – this will join you to the group telephone call.
Don’t worry if there are no spaces available for that time slot, please just try again on the next session.
Other Opt-in Services we are now going to be providing
- Telephone Befriending
Now that we have this telephone-based activity programme, we will stop the regular calls to all BeConnected members that began during lockdown. If you would still like to receive these calls, you will need to opt in by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
