Helper for Community Tea Party

  • VO99875
  • Home-based volunteering


Description

Isolation and Loneliness are on the rise especially with Older People in the Community. We are looking for friendly and caring people to help with our tea parties. Could you help serve refreshments and friendly conversation from the comfort of your own home? You will only be hosting once or twice a year, so this is perfect for fitting around your own availability and lifestyle.

All our guests are driven to your home by volunteer drivers, and you will be led by our tea party
volunteer coordinator. Normally your tea party will last for about 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon. It is the same local group you host so you can make some real connections to your community and the Older Guests. All training is remote, and you are supported by our team and Tea Party Co-ordinator in your role.

Organisation aims and objectives

Re-engage aims to relieve the loneliness and isolation of socially isolated older people by developing intergenerational groups that meet regularly and where older people can get to know peers and other people in their communities. Volunteers provide support through driving the older people to the group's social gatherings and making sure that the group meets regularly and by hosting the groups.
