Every action counts
It’s not what we do as individuals that make a difference but what we do as a team that counts. Whether your role is behind the scenes or you’re a face-to-face carer it’s the sum of our efforts that helps those in need. Every contribution we make is a great contribution and helps make the lives easier of those who need it most.
As a volunteer, you’ll play a vital role in offering many of the things that make life more meaningful for those seeking our care. Comforting a resident, helping out with activities, keeping things organised or even a warm smile for a colleague leads to a better environment for us all.
You see, it doesn’t matter what role you play with us, you are part of something far bigger. You are part of a team that shares a passion for helping others. And no matter how much we may differ superficially, we all agree on what is important. So if you’re looking for meaning in your life, we’d love to talk to you about volunteering.
Especially for men
While we tend to the needs of both genders, our workforce is primarily female. There are many roles and clients who would benefit from a male influence. Whether it’s bus driving or handyman roles, admin support, serving as a role model for kids or finding a connection with the elderly, men can bring a refreshing point of view to the people we care for.
For the young
There are some things that young people just seem to do better than older people. Take computers for example. What seems simple to a teenager, like sending an email, can seem more complex than brain surgery to others.
So if you can help out with basic computer advice, do a bit of reading, a game of chess maybe, or play the piano (or maybe even a kazoo) we have a spot for you. What better way to get that music practice in, than by making someone’s day at the same time.
Whatever you are good at or have a passion for, we know a few people who’d love to experience that with you. And you never know, they might just teach you a thing or two about life, and the real world.
