Independent Age Telephone Volunteer

People look forward to receiving telephone calls from Independent Age friendship volunteers. It is a mood booster and helps people feel more connected and less lonely. If you are a good listener and enjoy a chat, this is a great volunteering opportunity.

Telephone volunteering is an opportunity to use your listening and communication skills supporting an older person. Your regular telephone call can be a great source of satisfaction and enjoyment for you as well as the older person you’re matched with.  We ask all our Telephone Volunteers to give a commitment of 20-30 minutes a week for a year to build a strong relationship and so you can get the most out of your training.
