Dreamshine Community Interest Company is looking for volunteers for their COVID-19 telephone helpline.

The helpline (0300 3658554) covers all of North Tyneside and is for anyone feeling overwhelmed, lonely, anxious, nervous or just needing a good old chat.

The team will be available between 10am and 2pm, 7 days per week, with the potential for the hours to increase if there is demand and volunteers to support it.

You can also register your interest in taking calls by emailing dreamshineresponse@gmail.com or going on their website and completing the contact form.
