About the opportunity
As part of the organisation, our Connections Volunteers offer the vital connection and support our beneficiaries need. In the role of a Connections Volunteer, you will help support a lonely individual via regular telephone calls.
Depending on the beneficiary’s requirements, you will remain their volunteer for the duration of the project with the aim of integrating them back into the community and helping them become confident and independent again. As a Connections Volunteer, you will have the whole support of the Association behind you and a designated co-ordinator as your point of contact. We will provide you with all the necessary training so you can rest assured that you will have all the skills you need.
Not having someone to talk to during these challenging times can be lonely, particularly if the person is used to social activities and spending time with others. A friendly, 30-minute chat that you will offer will make all the difference
