About The Program
Maybe it’s been a while since you talked to someone, or maybe you’re grieving a loss, or maybe you just want to gush about your new grandbaby. A Friendly Voice is here to listen.
Did You Know?
We need volunteers to take calls, listen and connect seniors with resources in their communities. Volunteers do NOT give advice nor counselling. Any crisis situations will be immediately deferred to appropriate authorities, emergency or crisis services. A Friendly Voice provides training and resources to ensure volunteers have a successful and rewarding experience.
Volunteers must complete the application form, be willing to present or acquire a police record check for the vulnerable sector every year and participate in the training program. We ask volunteers for a 4- hour commitment per week to answer calls at the call centre or remotely.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for A Friendly Voice, please contact us or complete the Application Form below.

A Friendly Voice has been made possible through a Provincial Impact Grant from Ontario Trillium Foundation. However, the costs for this program do exceed what the grant funding provides. If this initiative is one that you feel inspired to support, we welcome your contribution.
