Volunteering with the Community Connect Team you will be developing and running a group that will help people move forward with accessing support, gaining social structure and then setting and working towards personal goals by sharing your skills and or knowledge to help people engage within the project.

Volunteering with the Listen & Connect team you will be working with a staff member to set up the meetings, ensure the sessions are friendly, safe, and well run, and help with making every one feel welcome. You could be making drinks for members, taking lunch orders, registering members on our software, having conversations or you might bring a skill to share!

Volunteering with Listen & Connect, you will be helping people in the community to get active, and increase their confidence to join new groups and reduce levels of isolation. 

Volunteering as a befriender, you will work with our Listen and Connect team to offer weekly telephone calls to people who are feeling lonely and isolated. The calls are vital to supporting people to live independently, and make positive choices for their wellbeing. We do this by helping people increase their social connections, through confidence building and access to opportunities.
