Volunteer Vacancy

Care to Chat Volunteer – Herefordshire

Just a couple of hours a week of your time could make a huge difference to people across Herefordshire. If you are good at listening and talking over the phone then Crossroads Together could have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.

We are looking for people who have excellent listening skills and someone who enjoys engaging with people from all walks of life. The best part is you can do this from the comfort of your own home.  You will need to be able to show your telephone friend respect, patience, empathy and understanding.

Other key aspects that may be involved:

  • Making time for a 30-minute call on the same day and time each week
  • A commitment to volunteering with us for a minimum of 12 weeks
  • Being kind and respectful to your telephone friend
  • Letting us know if you or your telephone friend needs any support

A DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check is required for this role. This takes approximately two weeks and it’s free for volunteers.

Please note: Due to Covid – 19  restrictions all calls will be made on your own telephones, please be sure your payment plan allows free calls. We will provide additional training to help you protect your privacy.

If you are interested in this volunteer role, please complete the short enquiry form and we will be in touch.
