We have launched a community support and listening line called 'Chat Newham'

It is a volunteer run telephone support service launched to support people affected by the COVID-19 crisis in Newham. This call service is for anyone who either wants to know about resources or would like a chat. It is for anyone feeling lonely, bored, anxious, or those who don't have anyone to talk to. It's for those who are grieving, or finding it hard living in a confined space.

Chat Newham is NOT a crisis, advocacy, medical support or emergency line. If calls of this nature are received callers will be advised to contact the appropriate emergency or support services.


The aim of the service will be to ...

Provide a friendly, listening chat up to 30 minutes long - (not counselling)


    Calls will operate between 10am – 4pm on weekdays.

    The FREE telephone number of the service is 08081963510. This will be a dial in only service.
