Support Group Volunteer

  • VO78458


Description

To run a monthly lunch group for adults who have an acquired brain injury. This is an informal and fun group of about 10 people who all get on and have a laugh together.

To support adults with acquired brain injury have an enjoyable lunch together in the community. The role involves chatting to service users and helping them socialise.
The lunch venues and tables will be organised and booked by our administrator so you are only required to attend on the day and have fun. The role may involve giving some advice and reassurance about sensitive matters but any specific 1-1 support will be passed on to their rehab worker at Momentum.
Following the group, any concerns/issues should be passed onto Momentum staff and a register taken.
