Elder Tree Befriending

Type: Emotional / social support, Information / advice

Location: All of Plymouth

We are seeking caring, compassionate and helpful people who demonstrate an empathy for older people. We are asking volunteers to make a regular weekly call to an older person to give them some contact during these isolating times. A friendly chat can make a world of difference to someone alone.

In more ‘normal’ times our volunteers make regular face to face visits and we hope that this can resume once it is safe to do so. So this role could continue after the Covid-19 situation.

We ask volunteers to apply via our web site (using the button below) or by phone.
We will require two references and a DBS check may be required along with your signature on a volunteer agreement to maintain beneficiary confidentiality.
We’ll expect you to keep in regular contact with us throughout.
