Carers Break Volunteers

Organisation Name: Carers Support Centre

Description of the Volunteer Role:

South Gloucestershire
Monday to Friday, mornings or afternoons (2/3 hours per week)

Do you enjoy building relationships with new people? Want a rewarding role where you make a real difference to someone in your local area?
Carers looking after a family member or friend, give invaluable care and support, so regular time-out is important to enable them to ‘recharge the batteries.’

We are looking for volunteer companions who can spare 2/3 hours each week to enable carers to take a regular break, by spending quality time with the person they care for. There is no personal care or manual handling involved.

If you are reliable and trustworthy and enjoy the company of others, you could be just the person we need! No previous experience is necessary; if you are sensitive, caring and compassionate this could be the ideal volunteering opportunity for you. Training and support are provided and we pay travel expenses.
