Would you like to volunteer for HCCN?

We are looking within our HCCN Community for support with our New Buddy Scheme for The Befriending Service.

Please register by Friday 31st May


We are looking to connect people we already serve with others who would like to have someone who understands their situation, and get in touch by telephone for a wholly confidential “chat” once a week, to listen to them, share interests/experiences, laugh.

HCCN are looking for compassionate and committed volunteers to deliver the Befriending Service

Orientation Day: Monday 17th June 2024, 10.15am – 2:45pm.

Training: Thursday 11th July & 25th July, 10:15am – 2:45pm
