Are you good at supporting people? Do you like to talk to people about things you are passionate about? Are you good at public speaking or delivering information to local groups and authorities? Here at the volunteer centre we are looking for individuals who are confident in supporting people in the above roles for our various charities.
One of our charities needs patient representatives to bring the viewpoint of a patient/prospective patient and or carer to focus groups, committee meetings and local health authorities. We also require people who enjoy gathering information and who can deliver it to group sessions. Some of our organisations are looking for individuals to can support their clients on their road to recovery from various backgrounds.
Does being a Tour Guide interest you? We have vacancies for people who like to talk and share their knowledge within specific genres. This can be done on an ad-hoc basis and training will be given. This will suit you if you would like to use your newly gained knowledge to keep the groups on the tour interested and build a good rapport with them.
We need people who can provide information at sight information points for people with low vision. This will involve helping them with their requirements, be it needing information or asking for help to read information to them. This will require a confident manner and a calm and relaxed demeanour.
We are seeking empathetic and understanding volunteers to support one of our charities with their clients who have mental health issues. As a volunteer for this position you will provide emotional support to the clients who are looking to get back into employment.
You can drop in and see us at the Roundhouse in the Marlowes for an informal chat – our opening hours are 10.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday and 10.00am to 2.00pm on a Saturday, or contact us on 01442 247209 and we can arrange for you to come in and meet one of our advisors who will go through everything with you.
