Home Visitor: Crosby, Liverpool
- A few hours weekly
- Crosby, Liverpool
We are looking for a friendly volunteer who could provide weekly companionship for our Crosby-based National Service and Territorial Army veteran. Currently very lonely and socially isolated, your company and conversation would greatly benefit this gentleman. If you have a couple of hours to spare once a week or fortnight you could really make a difference.
By providing regular companionship, social interaction and building a positive one-to-one relationship you can help to reduce the effects of isolation so commonly experienced by our veterans. Your positivity, friendliness and communication can make the world of difference to their day to day lives.
Volunteers need to be over the age of 18 years and able to travel independently to and from our veterans home. Reliability, punctuality and trustworthiness are essential requirements for this role as are good listening and interpersonal skills. An understanding of the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries is key to this role. We will give you the necessary training, induction and support to be confident and enjoy your volunteering.
