About the opportunity
Guideposts Trust are looking for friendly and chatty people to make telephone calls to people who they support who are currently unable to attend services face to face (due to the Corona Virus). Calls usually last up to an hour and would be for individuals or small groups. Calls can be made from your own home. And will usually be general conversation however if you have a special interest (particular hobby or interest) that you are confident to share with others this would also be helpful.


About Guideposts Trust
Guideposts provides support services for those whose lives are affected by the challenges of caring, aging, learning disabilities and mental health so that all people are valued and have equal opportunities.

Their vision is to:
•Break Barriers - within society caused by misperceptions, prejudice, oversight or lack of provision.
•Build Bridges - with essential information, resource, services and therapeutic approaches to help people manage their needs and connect with their communities.
•Create Connections so people have the opportunity to enjoy independence in all aspects of their lives - home, families, friends, leisure, learning and work so they can be an active member of society.

The charity achieves it's mission by delivering a range of information, advice and guidance and community based services which are person centred and designed to promote independence, wellbeing, quality of life and delay the need for intensive interventions.


What are they looking for?
Confident speaking to others on the phone, good conversational skills, friendly and chatty.
