Volunteers Needed for Carers Sitting Service

Volunteers Needed for Carers Sitting Service

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 12:45 by Jane Davidson

Would you like to use your spare time to help someone else or to gain experience while you search for paid employment? You could also gain a reference to use when you apply for jobs

The Carers Sitting Service provides support by giving a break to those who have a caring responsibility for a husband, wife, partner, parent, relative or friend. More »

Sitting sessions take the form of befriending and involve meeting the same person in their own home. As a volunteer befriender you would be visiting someone in your local area. Volunteers do not give personal care or cook meals, undertake cleaning or do shopping.

No qualifications are needed and induction training and on-going support will be provided. However, it is important that you are understanding, patient, non-judgmental, a good listener and open-minded.

All volunteers have a formal interview and will need to complete an application form and provide two references. If you are successful, a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) will be required and paid for.

To find out more, contact Adam Wilson on 01933 677837 or 07538 616387 or email him at adamw@northamptonshire-carers.org

Travel expenses will be paid for any visits made » Less
