Salisbury Volunteer Training Sessions – New Volunteers

“I’ve surprised myself with what I’m capable of. It’s given me confidence to deal with challenging situations. I feel like I could cope with anything – nothing would faze me.”

Salisbury Volunteer Training … We are running our next volunteer training session in the Salisbury area in February. There are still some spaces left so if you are interested in volunteering within a local care home contact us for further information.

As little as one hour each week can provide an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for both the volunteer and the older person being visited. Some volunteers visit the same resident each week, others are led by the staff as to who might like a visit and a chat.

Our training programme ensures that volunteers have the information and support needed to visit people in care homes and includes the following topics: Social, physical, emotional communication needs of older people; dementia; meaningful activities; adopting a person-centred approach; health and safety; confidentiality; safeguarding.

    Hi

    I am thinking about doing this. My parents were in a retirement home for their last few years and I enjoy spending time with people and helping.

    I am looking for work at the moment but would like to help if I can.

An Exciting Time to Join Care Home Volunteers

We are a small charity with big ambitions and we are seeking a Chief Executive to share our vision, continue the journey and take on the role with passion, energy and commitment. We recruit, train and support volunteers to make one-to-one befriending visits to residents in care homes for older people, bringing conversation, joy and smiles, and reducing loneliness and isolation.
