Volunteer Telephone Befriender

Currently we are only offering telephone befriending due to Covid Restrictions - making phone calls to reduce loneliness and improve well-being. This is an ideal opportunity for someone who enjoys talking with people and can offer much needed emotional support and friendship. We will provide you with a DBS check and training and additional support and guidance will be available throughout your time with us.


We are just looking for someone who is friendly, reliable and has good listening and communication skills.
