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 service aims to provide just that – by identifying family carers who would benefit from support in this way and then matching them to a volunteer.
If you could spare a couple of hours a week to support this service we would love to hear from you. You will be joining a fantastic team and full training and ongoing support will be provided.
