We are looking for volunteers to help with our telephone befriending and peer support service in London, the North West of England and in Scotland. 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.

Full training and out-of-pocket expenses are provided.  For an informal chat or to request a volunteer pack, please contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 0300 111 1234 (Mon-Fri 10am to 4.30pm)
