We want to be there for people affected by stroke who are feeling isolated and alone in their stroke recovery.
Many people will be feeling this way during the current pandemic, and we need your support to help more people across the UK. Our Here for You service connects survivors and volunteers to help combat isolation and offer peer support.
There are two volunteer offers:
Lived experience telephone volunteer
Peer support is one of a range of services we can offer to stroke survivors and carers and involves volunteers connecting and supporting others who may have had a similar ‘lived experience’ or health condition. Our lived experience telephone volunteers will regularly contact their matched stroke survivor or carer on the telephone to offer a listening ear and share thoughts and experiences. This offer may be relevant for those in the earlier stages of stroke recovery who have been (or will be) unable to access our traditional offers of peer support. View the role description.
Connect and chat volunteer
Telephone and online support is one way we provide support to over 45,000 stroke survivors, carers and families every year. Our connect and chat volunteers will regularly contact people on the telephone to provide social support to people who might otherwise become very isolated. If someone lives alone, or would like to hear regularly from a friendly voice and enjoys having a chat, this offer is for them. View the role description.
