Friendship Caller Volunteer

Help us to tackle loneliness and social isolation.Picture1.png

The pandemic has dramatically changed life for everyone. This is a really hard time for older adults, especially those who live alone, who don’t have family nearby or who can't get online. That’s why we have our Friendship Line which listens, provides friendship and offers support. Having a conversation can have such a positive impact, we can talk about many things that aren’t coronavirus related, for example current interests, hobbies, previous work life – the list is endless!

The role of a Friendship Caller Volunteer is to provide friendship, companionship and a listening ear to people who are 50 and over and would benefit from a chat.

We are looking for volunteers who will be available to volunteer their time on Monday mornings, Wednesday afternoons or Friday afternoons. Please see a role description below with further details and requirements of the role.
