Calderdale’s Staying Well team are looking to recruit new Volunteer Telephone Befrienders! If you are friendly, chatty and would like to give some time to make a regular call and brighten someone’s day then this is the perfect opportunity for you. The commitment can be as little as half an hour a week and the difference you can make to someone’s life is immeasurable. If you would like to know more get in touch on 01422 392708 or drop us an email at stayingwellproject@calderdale.
We will invite you along to an online Info Session to say a friendly hello and take you through the ins and outs of coming on board.
Isolation has never been such a concern and risk as it currently is but a chat with a volunteer befriender can make all the difference to someone who is lonely. Volunteering can give a great sense of purpose and reward. It’s one of your 5 Ways to Wellbeing and can also help you keep to your own routine, feel fulfilled and be more connected with your community.
