Carers in Touch Volunteers

Care For The Carers – East Sussex

Care for the Carers is seeking to recruit a team of volunteers to make telephone calls to isolated unpaid carers as part of its ‘Carers in Touch’ listening service.

About this Opportunity

The purpose of this voluntary role is to check in with identified carers, keeping them connected, reminding them that they are not alone, and reducing social isolation.  Successful applicants will have excellent communication skills, a non-judgemental approach, and want to make a difference for local carers.

Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one 2-hour shift each week, between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.  Full training and support will be provided.

At present the post will be home-based with remote support, although there maybe opportunities to be based at our offices in Eastbourne in the future.

We are looking for 10 to 15 new volunteers.

This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
