Could you support someone at the end of their life?

by Murray Hall Community Trust

Murray Hall delivers Bridges Support Service, which supports palliative care and End of Life patients and their carers. The organisation is looking to offer telephone befriending to its service users and /or their carers who may be in need of support. Telephone befriending can provide invaluable support to people who are at End of Life or are who are caring for a loved one at home. The volunteer role can be delivered over the phone at agreed times and is a much needed role.

Organisation description

Murray Hall Community Trust is a charity working with the elderly, lonely and isolated.

From home

Preferred skills

The telephone befriending can be offered from our office base or most volunteers prefer to do this from their own home. MHCT will provide a mobile phone for this purpose.

Experience gained

The volunteer can improve their own self confidence and be supported in their development. They can get great satisfaction from making a real difference to the lives of people at the most difficult time of their life.

Will the organisation carry out a DBS check?
