Can you spare a few hours once or twice a each week on an evening as an activity/social buddy?
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 and nursing care homes and community services throughout the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas.
One of our care homes in Yate is host to 6 amazing residents, who would love to attend the cinema, bowling, go out for a meal etc we are looking for someone social and upbeat!.
We are looking for a volunteer who is:
Has a good sense of humour
Encouraging and motivating
(Ideally) Holding a UK driving license
Available once or twice a week on an evening for socialising
You will have a full induction at the home and the volunteer lead will ensure you are confident with supporting the resident or residents.
The buddy role is based in Yate South Gloucestershire so would suit someone local and we provide agreed travel expenses.
Please note due to the nature of our service user group a DBS check and references will be carried out. We ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of six months volunteering.
If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in we would love to hear from you.
