About the Volunteer Opportunity

A Wellbeing Volunteer undertakes weekly calls to a range of members to check on their wellbeing. Offering support, advice, guidance and information over the telephone where needed.

We aim to ensure that our members are receiving the best support possible from us and one of the ways we do this is by staying in touch with regular wellbeing calls; contacting our members to check in and say hello and see how they are and whether they would benefit from the services that Deafblind UK provide. By simply asking how someone is, it may lead you to understand that someone may be lonely, depressed or needing some help in using technology – all areas where Deafblind UK can then follow up with support or……. it may be that they are absolutely fine and just happy to receive the phone call!

We are looking for confident, chatty and friendly individuals who can hold short conversations with our members over the phone. You could be chatting about similar interests or learning about their lives while making that ‘check in’ call – Whatever the conversation you’ll be making a positive difference.

About the Organisation

There are around 11,000 people who are living with deafblindness in Northern Ireland. If you have sight and hearing loss, we can support you to continue your life beyond deafblindness, helping you to be more confident, socially active and independent.
