Description

You will help to support our service users to enjoy one or more of their social clubs; Breakfast Club (Saturdays 9.30am – 12pm), Lunch Club (Mon / Wed / Fri: 11am – 1pm) or Tuesday Club (1.30 – 4pm), depending on your availability. This involves setting up the lounge area, serving food and drink, and then clearing up afterwards. You will also help to encourage service users to socialise together and interact with them, helping this group to enjoy their time together as much as possible.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience, meet new people and contribute to your local community.
