We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
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.
The Community Stroke Services provides communication support after suffering a stroke, resulting in communication difficulties. We provide a welcoming and stimulating environment which supports and promotes communication and encourages social interaction to enable people to build confidence and self esteem and to help improve quality of live to enable them to return into their communities to join other external activity based community groups.
Experience required: Potential volunteers must have a competent level of English language.
