Details of Role: 

Milestones Trust is a health and social care charity supporting people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and complex behavioural needs. The Trust provides residential, nursing and supported living services to around 500 people living in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire, and North Somerset areas.

An individual that we support in one of our supported living homes in Bishopston is looking for someone to go to Bristol Rovers football matches with them and to go to a pub to watch football games. They have a general interest in sports and would also like to go to the cinema to watch films.

Can you help?

We are looking for volunteers who are compassionate and patient with good social skills and who share similar interests as the person we support. Ideally this would be a weekly or fortnightly volunteer role, or as often as volunteers are able to commit. We provide a thorough induction, and support to volunteers throughout their role.

We can cover travel and some activity expenses.

Please note, for all of our volunteer roles a DBS check will be carried out and references will be taken up. All volunteers have a volunteer induction before starting the role and will be supported by both the volunteer team and a member of staff in the service too.

How to Apply: 

Please get in touch if you are interested in this role and would like to receive a volunteer application form (standard or easy read). If filling out forms aren't for you, please give us a call and we can take down your details.
