Community call is a phone call service for older people, people living alone or people in isolated areas predominantly in the West Cork area. The service is provided by volunteers and presently there are seven volunteers and two back up volunteers. The duration of the calls can vary from five to forty-five minutes and even on occasion longer! The volunteers also let the people know of other socials and various events on in the area. Calls are made in the morning or afternoon whatever suits the people best and at a time that suits them.
There is also a social side to the service and two or three social events are organised throughout the year which includes transport, food, entertainment, and a raffle on the day. These are held in local hotels. It affords the volunteers and the people to meet and interact with each other.
