Volunteers & Apprenticeships
We fully recognise the energy and enthusiasm of our volunteers and value the contribution they make throughout our family of homes. Many of our volunteers find their vocation whilst with us and go on to work for a care home in a full-time or part-time capacity; a real testament to the positive experience they have had as a volunteer at our Care Homes.
Our volunteers are equipped with a broad range of skills, knowledge and experience. They often have a generous quantity of time to offer and come from within the community which helps them connect with the residents or co-workers. We personally engage with each person volunteering their time to identify where they could best contribute and make a difference. Every volunteer receives training and support to ensure they have a great experience.
Some volunteers are giving their time as part of a work experience placement arranged through a school or as part of an award scheme, such as the Duke of Edinburgh awards. Others may be on a professional development pathway and are seeking to contribute their time pro bono to enable them to acquire the requisite number of hours practice. However they come to us, our volunteers will share a genuine interest in the well-being of others and a belief that to get the most out of life, you need to contribute fully to society.
We offer a range of volunteering opportunities and look to match skills and talents with the requests of our residents such as:
- Musical entertainment
- Arts and Crafts activities
- IT coaching, e.g. helping residents use the internet and computer software packages
- Leading book clubs / reading groups
- Befriending, e.g. taking the resident to the home’s café for a tea and simply having a chat
- Accompanying residents on outings, e.g. to the theatre or shopping
- Office tasks, e.g. filing, data input, reception, etc.
