Opportunity Details

Description
We are currently looking for volunteers in the High Peak area - except for Buxton or Glossop. If you can spare an hour a week on a regular basis to visit and befriend a client please don't hesitate to get in touch.

We befriend in people's homes and also offer a telephone befriending service when our volunteers make calls from our Volunteer Centre at 33/35 Union Road, New Mills, High Peak, SK22 3EL

The befriending scheme is aimed reducing social isolation.
Full training is offered and all visits are introduced by the Befriending Coordinator of the centre.
