We are looking for volunteers who are:-
- Available once a week or more if possible (days and times can be flexible)
- Friendly, supportive and encouraging
- Patient and understanding
No other particular skills are required but good communication skills, knowledge of the local area and a desire to help people would be an advantage.
You will complete a 4-6 week induction at the home during your visits to familiarise yourself with the service user and the volunteer role, and the home manager will ensure both you and the resident are happy and confident within the home before heading out into the community. There will also be support from staff at the service.
If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in, please either give the volunteering team a ring to discuss the opportunity on 0117 9709 356/319, or complete an online application below.
