Suitable for -
Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin has a team of volunteers who provide a regular friendly telephone call to older people who would appreciate a friendly chat and enjoy conversation and sharing experiences.
We are currently looking to recruit Telephone Buddies who can come into offices in Meeting Point House at Telford Town Centre on a Monday or Tuesday morning for a couple of hours. Most of our volunteers do one or two duties per month.
Telephone buddies must be able to offer regular weekly or fortnightly contact, be able to speak clearly and communicate well, providing a listening ear and where appropriate provide information about other Age UK services.
A completed application form and two references are required for this role. A DBS check is not required.
Agreed travel expenses will be reimbursed and volunteers are supported by an Age UK Shtropshire Telford & Wrekin coordinator.
