Description

Have you ever thought who helps and supports all the unpaid carers who care for loved ones?  An organisation doing just that are looking for friendly volunteers to help with their support group for unpaid carers, many of whom have very little time to themselves due to their caring role.  The Pick and Mix Group will offer practical advice, training and the chance for carers to have a chat over a cup of tea.  Carers can have a break and socialise.  We are looking for volunteers to support carers, offer encouragement and chat to participants and make them feel welcome.  This is a good role if you wish to demonstrate your communication skills, want to develop skills as a support worker or in gain experience or understanding of the care sector.

Friendly manner, enthusiasm, compassion, good communicator.

An  Application form will be needed to be filled in with an informal interview. A DBS Check is Required with References.

 

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
