Details of Role: 

Milestones Trust is a health and social care charity which supports people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and people living with dementia.  The services are provided through a network of residential/nursing care homes and supported living homes throughout the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas.

We are looking for a volunteer to befriend a gentleman with mental health needs and support him to follow his interest of gaming.  The resident has a play station and would really benefit from some guidance in using this and would really enjoy social interaction whilst playing against someone and sharing his interest.

We are looking for a volunteer who is:-

  • Experienced and enjoys playing game consoles
  • Reliable
  • Encouraging and motivating
  • Patient
  • Free for a few hours one day a month – this day can be flexible.

No other particular skills are required but good communication skills, confidence and a desire to help people would be a great advantage. 

You will complete a 4-6 week induction at the home to familiarise yourself with the resdient and the volunteer role.

Please note due to the nature of our service user group a DBS check will be carried out.

If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in we would love to hear from you.
