Home Visitors: North East England
- A few hours weekly
- Northumberland, Durham, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire & Leicestershire
We have a number of elderly blind veterans in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Durham and Northumberland who would love your company and conversation. With visual impairments, our older veterans can often feel isolated and lonely, so having a friendly face pop by their home or take them out and about in their local area can make a huge difference to their happiness and wellbeing.
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.
