TogetherNet – Keeping Gosport Residents Connected

27/05/2021

Just 30 minutes of your time a week could make a huge difference to an older Gosport resident’s life.

If you enjoy chatting, have good listening skills and would be happy to use a video app on your own device, you could join this exciting pilot project as a TogetherNet Video Chat Volunteer, and help reduce loneliness in our local community. 

TogetherNet is a new local project, run by Gosport Voluntary Action (GVA) where volunteers make a regular weekly video call to an older Gosport resident and both enjoy the many benefits of hearing and seeing the person on the other end. As a TogetherNet Video Chat Volunteer, you’d be matched with a Gosport resident who is aged 55 or over, who we have supplied with a device, WiFi, training and an app, completely free, set up to connect with you.

You would have a co-ordinator who would support you and provide guidance wherever needed.

It’s a fun, safe, easy way to make a real difference and you can take part from the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you both.

To find out more please view the role and express your interest online, or contact Laura Drew on dustbustersadmin@gva.org.uk or 02392 604689.
