"It’s Volunteers Week 2018 and time to thank our fantastic volunteers and celebrate the wonderful work you do! From our long-standing volunteers in Salisbury who have been with us since we started there in 2014 to our latest recruits in Chippenham and our new venture in Swindon, I say a big thank you on behalf of the many older people whose lives you make a little brighter every day" hear more from Norman https://www.facebook.com/carehomevolunteers/posts/1970007209717012

‘Our volunteers make a huge difference to the lives of older people in local care homes. They offer companionship, share interests, have conversations or sometimes they will just be with an older person. This special service really compliments the care that care homes already provide and creates an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for the volunteer and the older person being visited, which is greatly valued by care homes’.
Volunteers' Week - Information Sessions
During Volunteers’ Week, Care Home Volunteers are running a number of drop in sessions for those interested in finding out more about volunteering with this fantastic charity. Care Home Volunteers is looking for caring and friendly volunteers to join our team supporting older people in local care homes. We would love to hear from people who might be interested in a new exciting volunteering opportunity. No previous experience is required - training and ongoing support will be provided on a regular basis. Why not come along to one of our Volunteer Drop In Information Sessions (across Wiltshire) have a chat and find out more! Visit www.carehomevolunteers.org.uk/infosessions to see where we will be
