Are you a friendly, caring person who would like to make a difference to a lonely older person living in Northamptonshire?  As a telephone befriender you can make a huge, positive difference to someone who is feeling isolated. Could you ring someone on a weekly basis to have a friendly chat and provide a listening ear?  


Volunteers must be aware of the limitations some people endure so the need to be able to listen without judgment is essential. Volunteers must be able to attend training and understand the importance of providing feedback on a monthly basis to the co-ordinator. Volunteers must be able to commit to calling their client and inform the Charity if they are unable to.
