One of the important services that CHEER offers to our clients is the opportunity to have a regular home visit from a volunteer. A commitment of one hour a week to visit an elderly person in their home for a cup of tea and a chat can put an end to isolation and loneliness. Many of our volunteers build up a friendship that is rewarding and sees both parties benefiting from the experience.


You must have the ability to empathise with older people together with good listening skills.

If you think you might be interested in this role please contact one of our friendly team for an initial without commitment discussion.
