Why volunteer with Silver Talk?

  • Help reduce loneliness and isolation 
  • Increase your confidence and learn a new skill
  • Have fun and feel fulfilled
  • Positively impact someone’s life by simply chatting and listening
  • We only ask that you commit a few hours a week
  • Full training provided by the team at Karbon Homes

Currently, all of our volunteers are working from home. Where ever you're based, as long as you have access to a device and the internet, we would love to have you on board as part of the team. All volunteers will be provided with a mobile phone to make the calls.

We also want to make sure, that you, the people that enable this valuable service to run, are involved in every aspect of its running. We welcome your feedback and ideas for making the service better and will support you to make sure you are always able to provide the best quality service.

We know that time is precious but if you have a few spare hours each week and enjoy listening, chatting and getting to know people, then we might have the perfect opportunity for you.

Volunteering for Silver Talk is incredibly rewarding, and as a phone call from one of our volunteers could be the only conversation that service user has with anyone that week, you will be making a world of difference to that person’s wellbeing.
