Are you in need of a friendly voice? Someone to talk to, as we all find our feet during these unprecedented times? Don’t let COVID-19 isolate you from the rest of the world. 

It is very natural to feel confused and bewildered by what is going on around us. We know that there are many Islanders who are navigating these unchartered waters alone. We also know the power of keeping connected and the good that can come of sharing our experiences. After all, as the saying goes, a trouble shared is a trouble halved. 

That is why Mountbatten is extending its existing patient and family care, support and advice line to anyone who needs a listening ear. You may be living alone, you may have been recently bereaved - no matter who you are and what you’re facing, we are here to help. You don’t need to already be known to our services, just call our helpline* at any time of the day or night to speak to a friendly volunteer or member of our team.  

Call (01983) 217297 and keep connected with Mountbatten. We’re here to help you through this.

* Local rate call - we will phone you straight back if you prefer
