Have you had experience of caring for others and can lend a good listening ear?
A recent consultation with Carers conducted by Caring Together highlighted how isolated family carers feel, especially those who do not attend a support group. A large proportion said they would like to receive telephone support from a volunteer befriender. The Listening Ear project aims to provide just that – by identifying family carers who would benefit from support in this way and then matching them to a volunteer.
Could you spare couple of hours a week to support this project by drawing on past carer expertise? The role is flexible and runs on a 3 monthly basis per family carer. Training and support will be given..
Please telephone us on 01480 499090 or email [email protected] if you would like more information or an informal chat about this volunteering role.
- 2/3 hours a week for minimum of 3 months, anytime between 9am-5pm (initial training during office hours).
