Home Visitor: Weymouth, Dorset

Time Commitment
A few hours weekly or fortnightly
Location
Weymouth, Dorset

We are looking for a friendly and patient volunteer to visit our Weymouth based Royal Navy veteran who is now approaching his 95th birthday! Before losing his sight, our veteran loved woodwork and gardening, but now spends his time listening to audio books and newspapers. He would benefit hugely from a volunteer who could have a coffee and a chat with him in his home or the local garden centre.

A friendly and positive outlook with an understanding of the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries are key to this role. We will give you the necessary training, induction and support to be confident and enjoy your volunteering. We will also pay mileage for any miles you cover during your volunteering.

If you could spare a few hours to spend some time with this lovely gentleman, we would really like to hear from you.
