Are you are a compassionate person who likes to have a chat? Then you could be what we are looking for. We have a list of older people, some of whom are further socially isolated due to Covid-19 who would like someone to talk to. Some of these people may not speak to anybody from one week to the next, so you could make that difference by spending just an hour on a weekly basis (or more if you want) in conversation.
Do you read the Times newspaper? Are you a keen reader of the Times newspaper who can talk about the articles? We are looking for a volunteer who is able to support a gentleman who has had a stroke and likes to read and talk about the articles in the Times newspaper.
Full PPE is provided and full training regarding social distancing.
Time commitment: A suggested weekly time commitment can be as little as 1 hour per week, negotiable with the organisation.
Expenses reimbursed: Travel expenses are reimbursed.
Training provided: Full training is provided.
