The program
Having good social connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. TeleYarn provides phone calls to those who would benefit from a regular friendly conversation.

The opportunity
If you have a genuine interest in connecting with people in your local community over the telephone, chatting with people, listening and sharing stories then this will be the ideal role for you.

All volunteers are asked to complete a National Criminal Check.

TeleYarn calls are made from the comfort of your own home.
