Volunteer Role: Telephone Befriender

Are you interested in helping others?

Do you enjoy a good chat with someone?

Have you got the odd half an hour to help someone feel that bit less lonely?

Then telephone befriending could be the role for you! Our volunteers call people who have identified themselves as lonely and offer them a friendship call. Calls last on average for 30 minutes and make a real difference to people’s week. All volunteers receive full training for this role and are supported by a staff team.
