Volunteer as a Phone Buddy with Stay Connected
Here at Stay Connected we understand that within our communities, there are people experiencing loneliness. This has always been an ongoing worry for us. Our ethos at Stay Connected, everything about what we stand for, why we are here is to make a difference in the lives of others. For that reason, we are working to set up a team of dedicated volunteers to provide support to those in our community, who are experiencing loneliness.
Can you help?
We understand time is an important factor for everyone, so all we ask is if you can commit to 30 minutes as minimum weekly and be able to commit to at least 6 months.
