Care Home Volunteers
Volunteers represent a largely untapped resource that can hugely benefit the quality of life for older people in care homes.Through research, Care Home Volunteers has identified the challenges that care homes currently face in making the most of this precious asset. At the same time, we’ve identified the key components that will help provide care homes with volunteers so that they can deliver the fun, joy and stimulation that is sometimes missing for residents.

We are looking for friendly, caring and compassionate people who can offer some regular time volunteering across Wiltshire. We offer a bespoke training programme for volunteers.
Volunteers are ideally placed to provide an additional resource to give friendship, conversation and companionship to residents. Read our information about our recruitment and training programmes.
