Volunteer Befrienders 

During the peak of the Covid19 crisis Help on Your Doorstep recruited almost 70 volunteers to help with urgent deliveries of food and prescriptions and calling people regularly reducing isolation, loneliness and anxiety at a time when people were unable to attend their usual social activities. These volunteers have made a real difference to people’s lives - whether they supported one person or many. Now we are moving to a new phase, needs are changing and we need new volunteers. Read more about volunteering at Help on Your Doorstep

Telephone Befrienders 

Social isolation continues for many. People are simply not going out and seeing friends. Activities haven't yet opened. Many people are in need of simple conversation. If you have just 1 hour a week to spare you could make a huge difference to someone's life.  For full application details see here: Befriending_Role_Description

Volunteer Connectors 

People are still fearful about going out and are not managing to get to the supermarket, the hairdresser, a coffee shop or even for a walk. They just need someone to go with them to provide some friendly company.  Also, some would like to try new activities, but are anxious about taking those first steps.  Could you be that support?  You might be able go for a walk, or a museum etc.  For full application details see here: Volunteer_Connectors_Befriending_Role_Description

Coordination Volunteers 

Are you great at organising and motivating people?  Good at keeping records?  You can help us to match clients with volunteers in a localised area, supporting volunteers in their role.  Usually this needs a few hours a week, maybe an hour a day.  If you are interested full application details see here: Befriending_Service_Coordinator_volunteer_Role_Description.pdf
