We want to be there for people affected by stroke who are feeling isolated and alone in their stroke recovery.
Many people feel like this after stroke and we need your support to help more people across the UK. Our Here For You telephone support service connects stroke survivors and carers with trained volunteers to help combat isolation and offer peer support.
There are two volunteer offers:
Connect and Chat volunteer Telephone and online support is one way we provide support to thousands of stroke survivors and carers 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.
We're currently recruiting Connect and Chat telephone volunteers. Please complete the online form below if you're interested in being part of our Here For You team. Applications for this role will close at 5pm on Friday 20 May 2022 but we may close recruitment earlier if we have a lot of interest in this role.
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.

We currently have no immediate vacancies for Lived Experience telephone volunteers. Please come back and check this page, we'll announce when we're recruiting for any more Lived Experience telephone volunteers.
