Call companion coordinator

What is a call companion coordinator?
As a call companion coordinator, you will be the main point of contact for all of the call companions and older people in your group. Our call companion coordinators are a vital part of the Re-engage team, ensuring that their group of call companions have all the support and information they need to make regular friendship calls to older people.
This is a challenging and rewarding role which might be a bit busy to begin with but will take up less of your time once your group is fully up and running. This is a flexible, homebased voluntary role that can easily be fitted in around your own lifestyle and availability. Arranging the first call companion calls for your group is likely to take several hours of your time; once your group is up and running, however, you will only be volunteering for around two hours per month.
This is a long-term voluntary role, so we are ideally looking for individuals who are able to commit to volunteering with us for at least 12 months.
