We are recruiting volunteers to assist with a befriending service for older adults in a care home/sheltered housing setting alongside other befrienders. Main tasks include:
-befriend service users, improving their quality of life and reduce social isolation by spending time and share activities with the client.
-flexible times available to suit volunteers.
-establish and maintain appropriate boundaries within the befriending relationship.
-deal appropriately with confidential and sensitive material.
-undertake the TLC Volunteer befriender induction programme and attend support and training meetings.
-report any concerns to the project co-ordinator.
-complete the necessary administrative tasks (Record of Companion Contact)
-work within a non-discriminatory framework.
-A volunteer befriender will not be asked to meet any personal care needs
A great opportunity to help and make a real difference to the lives of older people. For further details please contact Richard Brooks (Chair, TLC Charity) at e-mail email@example.com or tel.: 07595221068.
