Lived Experience Telephone Volunteer

Peer support is one of a range of services The Stroke Association can offer to stroke survivors and carers and involves volunteers connecting and supporting others who may have had a similar ‘lived experience’ or health condition.

Our lived experience telephone volunteers will regularly contact their matched stroke survivor or carer on the telephone to offer a listening ear and share thoughts and experiences.

This offer may be relevant for those in the earlier stages of stroke recovery who have been (or will be) unable to access our traditional offers of peer support. 

As a lived experience volunteer you’ll be paired up with stroke survivors or carers who’d like some extra support to offer a listening ear and share thoughts and experiences.

By simply chatting on the phone, you can help someone feel less alone and make a real difference to people’s lives.
