The program

Having good social connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. Red Cross supports those who live alone or have few social connections. TeleYarn provides phone calls to those who would benefit from a regular friendly conversation. You will be making friendly telephone calls to lonely or isolated peoples who may be feeling a little lonely.  Providing an opportunity for participants and volunteers to have a chat, connect, and develop a friendship whilst supporting each other to maintain a healthy social wellbeing. 

The opportunity

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

All volunteers are asked to complete a National Criminal Check.

The impact
