Session Details

Check in and Chat Virtual Training


75% of our guests have said that they often feel lonely. Check-in and Chat is a chance for our guests to have a conversation with our FoodCycle volunteers once a week, to feel connected to others, to chat about food, to learn about each other and share the joy of a great a chat.
Check-in and Chat is designed to be a fun and easy way to connect to someone new, each week. It's also a chance for you to provide guests with information on local organisations which can offer them further specialised support.


Once you sign up, you will firstly be redirected to two short online videos that explain how the service works, how to make and log calls. You will then be asked to complete a quick quiz to check you understand the service. You are required to complete the quiz in order to successfully sign up for the Check-in and Chat Safeguarding training. Once you submit the quiz, you will be signed up.
The Check-in and Chat Safeguarding Training will take place on Zoom and will cover safeguarding, boundaries and signposting. As a Check-in Phone volunteer you will be having one to one conversations with adults which is why it is important for you to be trained in safeguarding. This is for you to feel comfortable and knowledgeable when volunteering with us. This training is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the service too!
All volunteers must complete this training in order to make calls. The safeguarding training will take place on Zoom and joining instructions will be sent the day before (make sure you check your spam folder regularly).
New training sessions become available once a month. Please continue to check this page to remain up-to-date.
