Call companions are volunteers who make regular telephone calls to lonely and isolated, older people. These calls provide a lifeline of friendship for our older people. The regular, warm, friendly chat and companionship is a vital link with the outside world from which they have become isolated.
The group call companion co-ordinators are the main point of contact for a group of our call companion volunteers and the older people they speak to on a regular basis.
Our coordinators are a critical part of the Re-engage team, ensuring that their group of call companions have the support and necessary information to make regular calls to older people.
Re-engage is looking for volunteers to interview new volunteer call companion applicants. You will telephone applicants on behalf of Re-engage and ask them a series of informal interview questions.
This is a remote voluntary role which can be carried out from home. You’ll use and develop your communication skills, gain valuable experience with a national charity and, most importantly, make a real difference to the lives of lonely older people.
