Telephone Befriending volunteers
Posted for Age UK Northamptonshire
Are you a friendly, caring person who would like to make a difference to a lonely older person living in Northamptonshire?
Age UK Northamptonshire are looking to urgently recruit Telephone Befriending volunteers.
If you can spare a minimum of an hour a week to chat to someone on the telephone on a regular basis, they would love to hear from you.
You will need to have an existing DBS certificate dated within a year preferably.
- Mental Health
- No specific interest
- Older People
- Supporting People and Befriending
DBS check required
If you do not already have a DBS certificate AgeUK can apply for one but this will inevitably take time.
- Equal Opportunities Policy
- Health and Safety Policy
- Ongoing support
- Training provided
- Volunteer induction
This opportunity can be carried out whilst working from home.
When do I need to be available?
