We can’t do what we do or reach our goals without Chatty Volunteers

As such, we strive to give you a great volunteering experience! We are committed to recognizing the input of our Chatty Volunteers and we ensure that all volunteers receive the support and training required.

The volunteering roles on offer include:

A Chatty Table Volunteer

Help start conversations at a “Chatter & Natter” table. To do this we would ask you sit at the “Chatter & Natter” table designated by the venue at an agreed regular time and encourage interested customers to sit at the table to have a chat. This role could be undertaken in a venue that is local to you. It’s a great way to meet new people in your community through creating a space to bring people together and have a chat.

A Chatty Telephone Volunteer

We match you with someone to call each week for around 30 minutes. We are working with social prescribing teams and receive referrals from people who are experiencing feelings of loneliness and would appreciate a weekly chat. This is a great role for a volunteer who would prefer a role that is home based.
