We all feel lonely sometimes, but the coronavirus outbreak can make it harder to be with others – particularly if you are staying at home.

To help address this, since COVID-19, we have adapted our services to offer one-to-one telephone support to help those experiencing feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

Following an increase in requests for 121 weekly telephone calls, the Chatty Café Scheme is looking for Chatty Volunteers. If you enjoy talking to new people and are a good listener, this volunteering role could be perfect for you.

If you think this might be a good opportunity for you, please ensure you have at least 30 minutes a week to spare and that you have unlimited calls on your phone.

• Friendly, empathetic approach and a good listener.

• Good communication skills.

• Can work on their own.
