We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Talking Points Signposter Role

  • VO72685


The role will involve speaking to people who don’t have an arranged appointment but have dropped in to speak to someone about Talking Points.

The signposter’s role may be to help find out what information the person needs and to help guide them towards this. If however, the person informs you that they need to speak to someone from the Talking Points team or you feel they would benefit from having a more in-depth conversation, you would ask them to take a seat whilst you notify a member of the team.
