If you love to talk to people, why not join us as a Check-in and Chat volunteer. You could make a real difference to someone who feels a bit lonely and isolated.
Without the amazing work of our thousands of volunteers across the country, FoodCycle simply wouldn’t be possible.
So much of our success is down to our incredible volunteers and, as a Check-in and Chat volunteer, you’ll be making regular phone calls to our guests to keep them connected, and just enjoy a good natter!
Pick up the phone and have a weekly conversation with some of our guests, to help them feel connected, and log the calls. You can also provide guests with information about other support services if they need them.
As a check in phone volunteer, you’ll be playing a vital part in connecting with our guests through weekly calls. You will chat about food, learn about each other, and share the joy of a great a chat! You will need to be confident in talking to strangers and have access to a phone and the internet.
You will need to complete a 1.5 hour online safeguarding training course.
An average call takes 20 minutes, and we ask that you do four a week.
You don’t need any specific experience; we just want you to be enthusiastic about supporting your local community. We ask that you complete all the required training and follow all policies and procedures.
All volunteers must be over the age of 18.
