Home Visitor: Rainhill, Merseyside
- A few hours weekly
- Rainhill, Merseyside
Are you ex-Merchant or Royal Navy? If so you may enjoy the company of one of our blind Navy veterans who is feeling lonely and would love some regular conversation and companionship. A keen Liverpool supporter our veteran also enjoyed bowling and gardening before losing his sight. If you can spare a couple of hours once a week or fortnight, we’d love to hear from you.
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.
