Volunteers offer contact, comfort and care by text message at the time the person needs it most. As a Textcare volunteer you would create packages of up to five texts, which are sent weekly on a specific day and time.
You would work one four-hour shift a week between 4.30pm and 10.30pm.
This role is a great way to use your life experience to help and support others. You don't need to be a mental health professional, though an interest in mental health is useful.
We look for people with empathy, warmth, understanding and compassion. If you already have these qualities our training programme will help you develop the necessary knowledge and skills.
You need to be able to speak and write English fluently, with basic IT skills to be able to use our systems.
