Community support volunteers

Volunteers can:

  • deliver chilled meals to clients' homes
  • take clients to medical appointments, and out in the community for social outings
  • make telephone monitoring calls to check in and have a friendly chat with clients
  • visit clients at home for a cuppa and chat, or drop off a home cooked meal
  • support clients to attend social events and activities.

No experience is needed but it is important that you:

  • have good communication skills
  • are reliable and punctual
  • have a genuine interest in older people's needs, hopes and aspirations
  • can maintain confidentiality.
