Being There Covid-19 Services
Being There is working a telephone listening line to offer emotional support to existing and new clients at this difficult time. We match people to a volunteer who will ring on a regular basis. Please contact the local branch numbers below for further information and to access support.
We are also running an online counselling service (via zoom) with professional counsellors. Again contact your local number below for more information.
Anyone interested in volunteering should also contact their nearest branch below.
Please leave a message with contact details if the line is busy and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Being There is a small charity providing emotional support and practical assistance to people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, along with those closest to them, such as family, friends and carers. We offer our support and volunteering opportunities in Manchester, Trafford, Salford and Tameside.
We are able to listen confidentially to your concerns about having cancer or another life limiting illness such as strokes, heart and respiratory illness. Our solutions to promote well-being include befriending visits, support and social groups as well as practical assistance, for example taking people shopping or transport to hospital appointments.
Please have a closer look at our website and videos to learn more about our work and volunteering opportunities.
We are only able to offer volunteering opportunities in Greater Manchester, UK.
