Volunteer telephone befrienders needed Posted on Thursday, 22 April 2021

Our Support for Carers team is looking for volunteers who would make a regular commitment to ring family carers for a conversation.
We know that the last year has been particularly isolating for carers who are with people who have been sheilding and a regular conversation has been a real help. You might talk about the carer’s concerns, the latest cricket match or the price of an online food delivery, you take the lead from them.
The phone calls would be made from your home, full training and ongoing support are given, and telephone expenses reimbursed.
For more details please email liz.mcmillan@vasl.org.uk or phone her on 01858 468543.
