The program

Having good social connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. Red Cross supports older people who live alone or who have few social connections, including people with disabilities and mental health concerns.

Red Cross social connection programs match those who are socially isolated with a caring and friendly volunteer.  The Telechat service provides this connection through weekly social phone calls that build confidence and resilience for the participant through sustained friendship and support. Within Telechat, we are currently looking for volunteers that can speak different languages. Of particular need are people who can speak: Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Croatian, Polish, German, Hungarian and Italian.

The opportunity

This role suits someone over the age of 18 that enjoys chatting to people and in this case, can speak a language other than English! It would also suit someone who has availability on weekdays during the hours of 9 am and 3 pm.

We are having our first induction and training session for this program on Wednesday 18th October 9:30am-12:30pm. Please call 1300 885 698 if you are interested and would like to attend. If you are unavailable, training can be arranged at another time.

The impact

As a Telechat volunteer, you’ll brighten the life of someone suffering vulnerability by offering them company and friendship. Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.

For more information, please see the volunteer role description or contact 1300 885 698.
