One to one Support Volunteers

  • VO73378


Description

We require volunteers to provide levels of support to enable service users to resume everyday activities. Service delivery can be very diverse and your level of involvement can be adapted as necessary.

Volunteers will support service users to access communication based activities and conversations within our services either in a hospital or home setting. A trained one to one support volunteer, supports the individual to achieve their personal goals. The outcome of this kind of service is increased confidence and ability to communicate in a variety of social settings.
