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.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic Rotherham Federation are working with funders and contract providers to fulfil our commitment of Strengthening Communities in Rotherham. This is including changing how we work in order to comply with Government guidelines as well as safeguarding our members, staff and the community as a whole.
In April 2016 Rotherham Federation won £401, 800 from the Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund to deliver its Community Voices and Choices project. The 36-month project adopted the Community Organiser approach seeking to address the lack of social capital, building community strength and empowerment in eight of Rotherham’s most deprived communities.
This is the final evaluation of the project produced in January 2019.
