We are recruiting Volunteers to assist with telephone befriending and/or shopping for our most vulnerable clients in this difficult time.
As a telephone befriender you will be matched with someone who is isolated and your role would be to contact them on a weekly basis to have a chat and check how they are getting on. If they need extra help Ruils can help to set that up.
Volunteer shoppers will be matched with a client and on a weekly basis. Shoppers will call the client, obtain a shopping list, do the shopping and drop the shopping at the person’s home. Equally those collecting prescriptions will do the same.
