Current opportunities

This is a wonderful opportunity for someone with good beautician skills and experience (amateur or professional) to support disabled residents to have nail, make-up or hair styling treatments or sessions at the residents supported living accommodation as a fun 'pamper' session or as and when desired. The role is designed to be fun but with some meaningful outcomes to be enjoyed by all concerned! The volunteer would be asked to provide some basic materials initially but all necessary supplies as required or recommended would be purchased ongoing.

This is an opportunity for someone with basic gardening experience and some time available to help residents of the charity to enjoy their gardens much more. The role is mainly light garden maintenance; grass cutting, pruning and tidying but with the hope that positive interactions with residents will also bring huge rewards. There is also a desire by the charity to expand this role to include supporting people with light gardening work in the wider community.
