We are looking for volunteers to help with our national telephone befriending and peer support service. The service is for people living with, and affected by, all forms of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) - patients and their care-givers. We have roles for two types of volunteers.
Telephone Befriending Volunteer
Volunteer telephone befrienders offer a sympathetic, listening ear to people with PKD and their care-givers. They offer friendship by telephone contact and this role may be suitable for you if you:
- have good listening skills
- have the ability to listen without judgement
Hospital Liaison Volunteer
Hospital liaison volunteers help promote our telephone befriending service to patients with PKD and their families visiting renal units. This role may be suitable for you if you are able to travel independently to and from renal units in your local area.
