About the opportunity
Volunteers are recruited from a range of backgrounds to reflect the wider community. Volunteers role is to support residents to enjoy the lifestyle of their choice through the continuation of a range of activities which matter to them. Volunteers can respond to individual interests of the residents and make arrangements for activities, in consultation with staff members. Volunteers are key to promoting the independence of residents by enabling them to retain their abilities for as long as possible.
Activities might include taking residents shopping, reading a book or a newspaper to them or going to church with them. If you have knowledge of crafts or hobbies that might interest or entertain residents you can use these skills in the home to enrich their lives.
