Virtual Befrienders


If you have an interest, or hobby that you would like to share with our service users, or something that you feel passionate about and would like to chat to someone with a similar interest, then we would love to hear from you.



Time commitment

Flexible, and agreed upon between the volunteer and services' needs.

Role description

We are looking for individuals to connect with residents.  Because this is virtual, the possibilities are endless.  You might live in Buckinghamshire and chat to someone in Newcastle.  All it takes is a small-time commitment.  How long and when is entirely up to you.  This is a very flexible role.

Maybe you are a keen sports fan, have a love of history, or Literature, or are passionate about politics and news, conservation or the natural world, crafts, speak another language, or anything else. You might just like to have a conversation with someone about day to day life.

If you can spare a little time to chat with a resident, please do get in touch.

We will provide some online training and support that you might need.
