About this opportunity
Join a team of volunteers providing their ‘Carers in Touch’ service, a telephone listening service for unpaid carers who have been identified as at risk of being socially isolated. The service provides an informal, friendly chat with carers to help them keep connected, remind them they are not alone, support their well-being and check they have suitable support systems in place.
The Role will involve:
- Making telephone calls to unpaid carers of up to 30 minutes in length
- Providing a ‘listening ear’ and friendly voice
- Signposting carers to the Care for the Carers Hub if extra support is needed
- Inputting the call information onto Care for the Carers database
Deliver at least one 2hour shift per week Monday to Thursday 10am to 4.30pm
