We have an exciting opportunity for a Wellbeing Calls Coordinator to join our team, as part of our response to the national emergency around Covid-19. This role will focus on matching volunteers with vulnerable adults impacted by coronavirus. The postholder will support around 40 to 60 volunteers at any time with adults impacted by coronavirus, as part of the Reconnect Service:

Wellbeing Calls involves over-the-phone befriending to adults across Edinburgh and East Lothian. Having a friendly chat has been proven to help improve health and wellbeing. Befrienders offer a friendly ear to those who may be feeling isolated. From chatting about hobbies or interests, to share advice and resources, befrienders are there to listen, talk, and understand. This project uses our befriending model, closely matching each person with a volunteer who meets their requirements and shares their interests. The post holder will work closely with the Reconnect team.
