Job description

Make a difference today!

 

 

Do you love to chat over the phone? Could you make a call that could brighten up an individual’s day?

 

Our members have sight and hearing loss and on occasions live alone with limited family and friends around them. Although they may get out and about on some days, quite often they find themselves home alone facing isolation and loneliness. We believe by providing an engaging volunteering service where people can gain friendships will ultimately improve our members’ quality of life.

 

 

How can you help…

 

We are looking for confident, chatty and friendly individuals who can hold a good conversation with our member over the phone. You could be chatting about similar interests or learning about each others lives. Whatever the conversation you’ll be making a positive difference to our member’s life.

 

 

Something as simple as phone call could brighten up our members’ week!

 

You don’t need to be local to the member and you don’t need experience to become one of our chatty volunteers. You just need to be comfortable talking over the phone, engaging, able to instigate conversations and commit to weekly or monthly calls to a member or 2.

 

 

 

Yes this is for me…..How do I apply?
