Volunteering for Shopper-Aide for just one hour a week to collect an older persons shopping list, do the shopping and deliver to their door provides an essential service which supports our older community to remain independent and in their own home.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist us with all manner of activities including:
Support to carers of the older person, where that support is not available from other agencies | Social activities for older people | Housekeeping | Home Visits | Prescription collection | Transport for appointments and social activities.
All our volunteers will have to be registered with the PVG (Protecting vulnerable groups) scheme to ensure the safety of our clients.
We also are looking for volunteers to visit our older people who are stuck at home and rarely see anyone.
Perhaps to take someone out to the hairdresser, for a coffee or to meet up with a friend.
We will help you to have a more sociable life or perhaps you might want to be involved in helping others less able.
