Carers Buddy Volunteer role

Description of the Volunteer Role: Are you an unpaid carer, or do you have past experience as an unpaid carer? Would you like to share your experience with other carers who may be new to caring and needing emotional support and signposting to services? As a buddy, you will be matched with a carer to offer them practical support by phone, email or Skype. If you can commit to around 4 hours per month, we would love to hear from you. You will need to be reliable, have a good understanding of health and social care systems (training will be provided) and have good listening and communication skills. We provide an excellent package of training and on-going support to all our volunteers.
