Telephone Befriending volunteers

Are you a friendly, caring person who would like to make a difference to a lonely older person living in Northamptonshire?

Age UK Northamptonshire are looking to urgently recruit Telephone Befriending volunteers.

If you can spare a minimum of an hour a week to chat to someone on the telephone on a regular basis, they would love to hear from you.

You will need to have an existing DBS certificate dated within a year preferably.


Good communication.


  • DBS check required
    If you do not already have a DBS certificate AgeUK can apply for one but this will inevitably take time.
  • Equal Opportunities Policy
  • Health and Safety Policy
  • Ongoing support
  • Training provided
  • Volunteer induction

When can I volunteer?
