Are you a good talker? A great listener?
Butterflies is a local community charity providing support to bereaved and lonely people through groups and services. We are a volunteer led charity and all our volunteers are interviewed and have DBS checks.
We are looking for Telephone Friendship Buddies in the Gosport area. A Telephone Friendship Buddy will call a couple of lonely and isolated people each week to check that they are okay, have a general chit chat and provide that essential link with the outside world.
For many of our clients a weekly call is the only friendly voice they hear.
If this sounds like you, then the Butterflies Friendship Service needs you.
