Buddy activity log

Thank you for being a Lymphoma Action volunteer, and being a buddy for people affected by lymphoma.

We couldn’t run our Buddy Service without our Buddies, and we want to recognise the valuable contribution all of our volunteers make. To do this, we’d like to be able to share the amount of time our volunteers give to us, and so we ask that every volunteer sends us a log of the time they spend in volunteering activities.

When we ask you to be a Buddy for an individual, we would like to know how much time you give to that individual during the link, whether it is by phone or email. Once you have completed a link (for example, you have agreed and had your last conversation with them) or after six weeks from the initial link, please use this form to tell us the time you have given to the link. (You may want to keep a note of the length of each contact so that you have it to hand at the end of the link and can complete this form.) 

If your link continues after you have completed your log, please come back to this page and complete another log.

If you would like to talk through anything in relation to the link, if it has brought up any issues for you, or you would just like to keep in touch with us, please do give us a call on the helpline: (freephone) 0808 808 5555 between 10am and 3pm, Monday to Friday. If you leave us a message we will call you back.

You can also use the LA Buddy peer support Facebook group if you would like to get in touch with other Buddies to chat about issues relating to links and supporting individuals.

How did you communicate with the individual?
