Volunteering opportunities. Supporting "Care in the community"

Current opportunity

The First Time for Everything service is a joint project between Royal Voluntary Service and the Prudential. The service gets groups of older people together and gives them the opportunity to try out an activity that they may never have tried, or even thought about trying before. These activities aim to keep older people active and social. This is especially key as staying active and social has been proven to be important to keeping healthy and well in older age. Volunteers are required to meet and greet participants, assist with admin/signing-in sheets/surveys. Support participants to take part in the activity if required and help serve tea/coffee refreshments. The activities are monthly/twice monthly on a Tuesday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm. Shifts are flexible! We are a caring organisation and give a friendly, helpful and very caring service. Expenses can be claimed. katherine.pabla@royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk is the Project Manager for the First Time for Everything and is very happy to answer any questions.
