Volunteer Roles: 

‘Community Connect’ 

Our ‘Community Connect’ service aims to reduce social isolation and re-connect carers with their community. Volunteers will play a crucial role by making contact with carers on a weekly or fortnightly basis in order to provide befriending, information and support.

Christine who volunteers on our TLC service said:

‘I enjoy my volunteer role calling carers who are isolated by caring.  I find it very rewarding to support carers by listening and giving them a chance to offload and have a chat.  For carers their whole lives become focused on the person they care for and my calls give them a rare chance to talk about themselves.’ 

Ellen who volunteers at the Carers Café said:

“I first started volunteering because of being a carer myself for my Mum who had dementia. I feel my experience of caring means I understand carers and the things that are difficult.  I find volunteering very rewarding when I see how much people appreciate the time I spend talking to them.  Taking the time to listen to carers and just have a chat really makes a difference.”
