Make a difference to your local area and volunteer for Carer Support Wiltshire.

Telephone befriending during the COVID-19 outbreak

Can you help reduce isolation for unpaid carers by a simple, weekly phone call during this difficult time? As a Talk and Support volunteer you will be a friendly voice to regularly talk to, to listen to carers concerns and uplift their spirits reducing feelings of loneliness at this particularly difficult time. If you can support and remotely befriend carers, please complete our volunteer application form. 

Why volunteer?

‘My confidence had suffered after being away from work for so long as I was unsure how much I could commit hours-wise, but that wasn’t a problem. We talked about areas in which I could potentially help, and I asked if I could join the Administration team, which I eventually did! I can honestly say that it was one of the best things I have done!’ Sue, Volunteer and now in Admin team.

Various roles available in Administration, Connecting Communities, Marketing and promotion and Individual support. Training available.  As little or as much time contribution is welcomed.

If you would like to find out more please get in touch with Lindsey Millen on 01380 908041 or email LindseyM@carersupportwiltshire.co.uk. Or you can apply now by completing our online application form.
