Our volunteering opportunities
Volunteering makes a huge positive difference to the people we care for and our volunteers find the role truly rewarding.
Some find volunteering helps with their studies, whilst others find the time they give benefits them socially. Others volunteer because they see the benefit and it makes them feel good. A few people have even found permanent employment with us as a result of volunteering. Whatever your reason, please come and try volunteering with us!
Here is a selection of our current volunteering opportunities:
Day Centre Helper
Our Day Centres are a wonderful way to interact with older people in a group setting. As a volunteer you can enjoy getting involved with activities such as quizzes, craft, excursions and just chatting to our lovely service users.
Our residents really benefit from having someone who can spend some time with them. Sitting, talking, reading, helping with activities or walking in the garden are all valuable tasks.If you can spare an hour or more per week and would like to make a positive difference please get in touch.
GardenersThe gardens are an important part of the site for residents and relatives to be able to enjoy. We don't expect you to be a whizz in the garden, just someone with passion and an interest! This role can be adapted to either working by yourself or involving the residents to help with potting and such appropriate tasks.
Day Trip Volunteers
If you are unable to volunteer regularly, but would still like to contribute, why not join us as an occasional volunteer? We are always needing an extra pair of hands to help make a day out run perfectly. Our days out are always supported by staff and are great fun for all concerned!
We are seeking volunteers to help assist in the day to day administration of the Housing department. Duties will include filing and dealing with tenants queries on the telephone.This is ideal if you wish to gain experience in general administration work.
Fancy pulling a pint?
We are looking for help with our new pub, The Albert Tavern!
Every day residents enjoy their lunch and a tipple and we would love some volunteers to help us between 12 - 2pm.
