Job Vacancy: Part-time Befriending Service Co-ordinator


We are currently recruiting for a Part-time Befriending Service Co-ordinator, based at Gosport Voluntary Action.

Gosport Voluntary Action in partnership with Age UK Portsmouth have been funded for 3 years (2.25 years left to run) to continue its high quality and innovative Befriending Service for older people. This project aims to alleviate loneliness and to enable people to stay living independently at home. The service currently has the support of 70 volunteer Befrienders and provides a telephone befriending service and CHAT (Come Here and Talk) groups to give some service users the chance to meet up in a small group once a month.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, organised and empathetic co-ordinator, who has either worked or volunteered with older people and who has the skills, drive and commitment to run and expand a successful project within our friendly team.
