Unite - Carers in Mid Devon

 

VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES


We are always keen to meet new volunteers who might like to help Adult Carers or support activities for Young Carers. Volunteers often find that working with carers brings out their best qualities including their ability to listen to and support people, as well as their patience, tolerance, enthusiasm, sensitivity and warmth.



Some volunteers support adult carers by visiting for a chat, reducing isolation and helping to keep them involved with normal daily life. They can work together with the carer helping in any number of ways. Support has included: gardening, de-cluttering, helping with forms, developing computer skills, visiting care homes and transport for medical visits.



Other volunteers help Young Carers by supporting monthly club nights in Crediton, Cullompton or Tiverton, or by going with them on monthly group outings



People with administration skills may like to help us by volunteering in the office for a morning each week or even getting more involved as a trustee.



Whatever your interest we would love to meet you to see if we can help each other!





All volunteers are required to have an enhanced DBS check.
