Volunteer as a Phone Buddy with Choose your Carer
Here at Choose Your Carer we understand that within our communities, amongst us, are people experiencing loneliness. This has always concerned me greatly, especially since my experience working as a social worker in adult services. Our ethos at Choose your Carer, everything about what we stand for, why we are here is to make a difference in the lives of others. For that reason, I am working to set up a team of dedicated volunteers to provide support to those in our community, who are experiencing loneliness.
“THE MOST TERRIBLE POVERTY IS LONELINESS”
Can you help?
We understand time is an important factor for everyone, so all we ask is if you can commit to 30 minutes as minimum weekly and be able to commit to at least 1 year. We do also have a criteria list, to volunteer, which you will find included below.
