Details of Role: 

Milestones Trust is a health and social care charity supporting people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and dementia. The Trust provides residential, nursing and community support services to around 750 people living in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset areas.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, staff at our 8-bed learning disability home in Almondsbury have been busier than usual. We are looking for a volunteer who would do a weekly shop, which would allow staff to focus more on providing direct support to residents.

Role

You would be asked to do weekly shopping using your own vehicle to ensure that the people we support have sufficient supplies.

Requirements

We are looking for a volunteer who is:

- Local to the Almondsbury area

- Reliable

- Flexible

- Have own transport (mileage for up to 5 miles paid by the Trust)

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

Please note, due to the nature of the group of the people we support, a DBS check and reference checks will be carried out.

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

Closing Date: 
Saturday, 3 October, 2020 - 15:45
