Friendship Caller Volunteer

Friendship Line Ashley

Help us to tackle loneliness

Having a conversation can have such a positive impact. That’s why we offer a Friendship Service which listens, provides friendship and offers support. We can talk about all sorts, from current interests, hobbies, personal and professional goals, top tier biscuits, time travel – 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 weekly chat. We are looking for volunteers who can volunteer 2-3 hours of their time on the same day each week.

Please see a role description below with further details and requirements of the role. Full training will be provided via Zoom.
