Uniting Victoria and Tasmania - Volunteer Hub

Telephone based social support

Telephone Based Social Support 



Through Chat-a-Ring, people get a call from a volunteer each week or fortnight to connect through a chat, read the newspaper or magazine together, share a crossword, quiz or game, or perhaps record a life story.



Telelink is a telephone support program for groups of up to 10 people across Melbourne, who chat together each week on the phone from the comfort of their own homes.

Telelink is a great way to make new friends and discuss shared interests with like-minded people. Participants choose from a range of weekly topics that match their hobbies and interests, from books to history and trivia, as well as language groups

Uniting is a child safe organisation and is committed in everyday practice to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children, at all times. As a ‘child safe’ organisation, volunteering with Uniting is subject to a satisfactory national (and international where relevant) police check and Working With Children Check (in Victoria) and/or Working With Vulnerable People Check (in Tasmania) prior to commencement in any service or undertaking.
