Volunteer Befriender for the Listening Ear Service

Volunteer Befriender for the Listening Ear Service

Have you had experience of caring for others and can lend a good listening ear?

A recent consultation with Carers conducted by Carers Trust Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk highlighted how isolated family carers feel, especially those who do not attend a support group.  A large proportion said they would like to receive telephone support from a volunteer befriender.  The Listening Ear project aims to provide just that – by identifying family carers who would benefit from support in this way and then matching them to a volunteer.

Could you spare couple of hours a week to support this project by drawing on past carer expertise? The role is flexible and runs on a 3 monthly basis per family carer. Training and support will be given. Click here for the Volunteer Role Profile.

Please telephone us on 01480 499090 or email volunteers@carerstrustcpn.org if you would like more information or an informal chat about this volunteering role.


  • 2/3 hours a week for minimum of 3 months, anytime between 8am-8pm (initial training during office hours).
