Description

Due to the current situation with Covid 19 (Coronavirus) we are offering a Telephone Befriending Service to all of our clients.  We will be keeping this under review over the coming weeks / months and will be taking both Public Health and Government advice to protect both our volunteers and clients and ensure that the most vulnerable are safe

 

We are looking for caring, friendly people to join our exciting Buddying and Befriending Scheme, which aims to reduce loneliness and isolation amongst the over 50s in Cheshire.

Our Volunteer Befrienders help create a supportive friendship with someone who may be experiencing loneliness as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is achieved through weekly phone calls, where the volunteer can have a friendly chat with the client, making a big difference in a small space of time.

These opportunities would suit anyone who enjoys building relationships with other people, and who has a positive attitude to older people. The time commitment is flexible.

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
