Helping socially isolated people

Although charities and voluntary organisations organised telephone calls to the elderly and socially isolated ( I myself was a volunteer) during the pandemic the fear is this will now stop. The amount of solace and sense of engagement of just speaking to another person one on one was incredible and I believe there is an opportunity for the country to build on this – perhaps all large companies, universities , football clubs could liaise with health and social care and link callers with socially isolated people on a weekly/ regular basis. This would bring benefits for both caller and the socially isolated.
