Activities and Support Volunteer

  • VO91447


Description

Aberdeenshire Council Sheltered Housing, are recruiting volunteers, following the pandemic over the last two years, without activities and its effects of loneliness and isolation; It has never been more important to support our older people's communities. We have Sheltered Housing Complexes spread all over the shire. Our tenants love all things activities, and support for many of these is crucial, from calling out the Bingo, getting the refreshments ready, to helping out with arranging a soup and sweet day, or helping to organise a day out with the tenants, a music event, enabling and supporting them to have meaningful events and activities is, life enhancing and a massive boost to wellness, both physical and mental. The volunteer is valued and forms lasting friendships with tenants, which is why being a volunteer is so hugely rewarding.
The volunteer person, would assist with setting up activities and events, participating when required to do so by the sheltered housing tenants. Supporting tenants as required, sometimes just being there, having a cup of tea and helping to wash up afterwards is all that's needed. In any event the volunteer is hugely valued and appreciated by all. Training is provided, and you will be well supported in your role.
