The role of events helper would involve helping set up for events, assisting and speaking to members of the public, helping with refreshments, promoting what the theme of the event is and helping to clear up afterwards.

* Greeting people who come in and signposting different organisations/groups depending on their interests or needs (giving community information) * Serving those who attend the Market Place in our café * Conversing with people who come into the building and register an interest in volunteering * Ensuring the area is clean and tidy

The role will involve speaking to people who don’t have an arranged appointment but have dropped in to speak to someone about Talking Points. The signposter’s role may be to help find out what information the person needs and to help guide them towards this. If however, the person informs you that they need to speak to someone from the Talking Points team or you feel they would benefit from having a more in-depth conversation, you would ask them to take a seat whilst you notify a member of the team.
