By volunteering as a Silver Circle Facilitator you will support a weekly telephone friendship group – a Silver Circle – for up to 6 older people each week.
Did you know? In the UK, more than 1 million people aged over 65 say they often or always feels lonely. Through this role you will be helping us support the 1,000s of older people who use our service each week and ensuring we continue to reach out to those most in need.
This is a volunteer role that you undertake from home. Volunteers will need to have excellent skills in managing group dynamics and have a desire to support older people through encouraging and facilitating friendly discussions.
All you need is access to a telephone and the internet. We ask for a commitment of up to a year where possible and the ability to facilitate the call on the same day and time each week between 8am and 8pm Monday – Friday.
“I love listening to the wonderful conversations the Silver Liners have in their groups. They share life experiences, what they have been up to during the week and lots more!”
Tess, Silver Circle Facilitator
