Social Support Volunteers
If you are interested in making a difference in someone’s life and your own by offering:
- Companionship by making a friendly home visit
- Social support by taking someone out for lunch or a coffee
- Assist them shopping
- Accompany to appointments
Our Social Support Project currently has positions available. The average minimum time of a visit is approximately 2 hours per fortnight – however this is negotiated with the client and volunteer, and you can have more than one client if you wish. Volunteer opportunities are available for both men and women over 18 years.
The service reimburses volunteers for approved out of pocket expenses. While volunteering you will meet new people, learn new skills and put your existing skills to good use as well as gaining valuable work experience if you are looking for paid work.
So, If you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis, enjoy meeting and assisting people, and have your own comprehensively insured vehicle – then we would love to hear from you.
