Home-based
Voluntary
Job description

We are looking for volunteers to make themselves available to speak over the telephone to people self-isolating, particularly those we have identified as elderly and/or vulnerable. Many in our communities are isolating alone and this will have a huge impact on mental health. Remote befriending will help to alleviate boredom and isolation, and will also take pressure off the TFST, Neighbourhoods and Community Development teams.
