Call Companion Coordinator

The call companions idea is very simple; a volunteer call companion calls the same older person between two and four times a month at a mutually agreed time for an informal chat.
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. This is a challenging, rewarding role which might be a bit busy initially but will take up less of your time once your group is established.

About Re-engage

Re-engage exists to support older people who live alone and find it hard to get out in normal times. The Covid-19 crisis is particularly devastating for these people and many are feeling incredibly vulnerable, especially those with few family members or friends to talk to. In response to the crisis we’ve suspended our regular social gatherings and, with the help of our dedicated volunteers, have set up a UK-wide call companions service. Older people who are feeling alone can receive a regular friendly phone call throughout the crisis and beyond, for as long as they want it. No one should have to face this crisis alone. We won’t leave anyone behind.
