Home Visitor: Felixstowe, Suffolk
- A few hours weekly
- Felixstowe, Suffolk
Our veteran has had a fascinating life, having served with the Indian and British Armies before embarking on a second career in vehicle sales which saw him working in Africa, USA, Australia and Europe. Now based in Felixstowe, he would like a reliable volunteer to visit him in his home for a cup of tea and a chat. If you have an interest in motor vehicles, like travelling or have spent time in Africa, this would be a perfect fit!
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.
