Do you have the heart of a volunteer? Do you want to change someone’s life through a Social Support program? We have a number of residents that would benefit from visits by real people to sit and talk with them or to take them for walks in the grounds. One morning or afternoon per week or fortnight would greatly assist.
We have a very popular coffee shop with an automatic coffee machine (We will train you but it is very simple). We need volunteers to assist in this shop under the guidance of a Convenor and you would be working with another volunteer. Mornings only.
