Carers Support Centre
Contract Type: 
2-3 hours (Monday to Friday) a week or fortnightly during the day
Contract Details: 
Details of Role: 

Do you enjoy building relationships with new people?  Want a rewarding role where you make a real difference to someone in your local area?  Would you like something rewarding to do in your spare time?  Carers looking after a family member or friend, give invaluable care and support, so regular time-out is important to enable them to ‘recharge the batteries’.  

We are looking for volunteer companions who can spare 2/3 hours each week (weekday mornings or afternoons only) to enable carers to take a regular break, by spending quality time with the person they care for.  There is no personal care or manual handling involved.  We are looking for people living in or around South Glos, and will only ask you to travel within your local area. 

If you are reliable and trustworthy and enjoy the company of others, you could be just the person we are need!  No previous experience is necessary; if you are sensitive, caring and compassionate this could be the ideal volunteering role for you.  Training and support are provided and we pay travel expenses. 

Closing Date: 
Friday, 12 August, 2022 - 13:00
