Listening Ear Jarrow (LEJ) are now recruiting volunteer listeners

LEJ is a free listening service for adults in South Tyneside who are alone, isolated or feel they would benefit from having someone to talk to.

It was created in response to ideas generated in Mental Health Awareness and Action Sessions run by our partner organisation Even Better to provide community led support .  It delivers high quality training for volunteers,  addresses loneliness and isolation in our community and is part of wrap around mental health support in South Tyneside.

Volunteers receive training, supervision and support from their peers as well as developing skills, confidence and employability.

if you would like to have an informal chat about volunteering, please get in touch with Angie on 0191 217 2935 or email kindmindcommunity@mentalhealthconcern.org
