As a rainbow call companion, you will be someone who identifies as LGBT+ who wants to support lonely older LGBT+ people. You will be the main point of contact for the rainbow call companions and older people in your group. Our rainbow call companion coordinators are a vital part of the Re-engage team, ensuring that their group of rainbow call companions have all the support and information they need to make regular friendship calls to older people.
This is a challenging and rewarding role which might be a bit busy to begin with but will take up less of your time once your group is fully up and running. You’ll be checking in with your group members once a month, and you’ll conduct a short wellbeing questionnaire with the older people in the group every six months.
You will need one reference and to complete an ID check for this role.
