We are looking for friendly and chatty volunteers to support our Community Connecting service. The service aims to tackle loneliness and isolation directly by helping people access social groups and activities.
This involves contacting the users of the helpline who have requested this service, to find out what type of activities they are looking for and research suitable opportunities. It may also be necessary to contact groups to find out further informtion, before calling back the enquirer.
Some callers may want to chat while they are establishing links within their community and it may be appropriate to arrange a weekly call to them in the short term.
At the moment we are looking for volunteers on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
