Communities Volunteer

  • VO92541


Description

This role is similar to that of peer mentor or befriender in that you will provide companionship to those living at Crighton Place. This could be as simple as being available to play a board game or cook a meal together. At other times you may accompany a resident to the cinema/shops/museum or to an event in the city.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our vision is an inclusive society in which we all have the opportunities to live valued and fulfilled lives. We work to make that vision a reality by our mission to support people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey.
