GL11 Community Hub

We’re looking to create genuine, long-lasting friendships to help prevent loneliness and isolation. One-to-one friendships between volunteers and local residents can take the form of a weekly phone call, a chat over a cup of tea or a walk in the park

Information for volunteers

This is an opportunity for volunteers to build their social skills and meet other people in the community. This is a fixed 6-month friendship supported by GL11 Community Hub. The volunteer requires a friendly, empathetic attitude, their own transport and potentially the ability to make a good cup of tea!

A volunteer handbook as well as training on active listening and safeguarding will be provided by GL11, and until a match settles, the Volunteer Manager will be in touch after each visit to find out how it went and whether any further support is required.
