Angus Carers

Telephone Befriender

We are looking to recruit volunteers to our telephone befriending service. Carer support workers refer carers to this service that provides a weekly call from volunteers that check on the befriendee’s wellbeing. Calls last approximately half an hour and the volunteer is provided with guidance on conversations. This role has proved extremely successful with good feedback from the carers and the volunteers. The service runs Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm and the volunteer provides feedback after each call. Full training is given and the opportunity is suitable with someone who has a few hours to spare. Potential volunteers will be required to undertake a volunteer interview on zoom.

If you are interested in this role then please contact our Volunteer Development Worker Jim Dallas on 07387 017442 or email jim@anguscarers.org.uk
