To chat with people who are feeling isolated and alone.
We are a registered charity (SC049674) who sit with people who are dying and alone in their final hours. We also support people who have families that need support and/or respite.
At this present time due to coronavirus we are offering telephone support to the above, but also to the wider community. The post can be at least one daily telephone call to be made to one person, less if needed. A few more people can be supported each day if you wish. We will carry out a brief interview through video call where we will also fill in an application and PVG form. We are looking for volunteers with experience of just listening/counselling and also volunteers for general chatting to break up people's days.
