The role of the Community Engagement Volunteer is to inspire groups and individuals about the work of The Silver Line and ensure the impact of loneliness and isolation on older people is understood. You will raise awareness of the services The Silver Line offers, and help us to encourage people to volunteer and support us in reducing isolation and loneliness for older people. This could include: Represent and be the face of The Silver Line at a range of events, including volunteer recruitment events. Provide and distribute information and materials to a variety of audiences.
Promote the range of volunteering opportunities available across the charity. Provide other volunteer and statutory organisations with information on the service The Silver Line provides, including information on how to refer to The Silver Line as appropriate. Raise awareness of the impact that loneliness and isolation has on older people and the difference a regular, simple telephone call or letter can make. Engage members of the general public in a friendly, enthusiastic and motivational manner to raise awareness of the work of The Silver Line. Answer general enquiries and direct any specific questions to the appropriate member of The Silver Line staff. Encourage people to leave their details so that we can forward them further information.
