Get On-line Welfare Benefit volunteers
We are keen to recruit an additional volunteer to join our Get Online team on either/both a Tuesday or a Thursday morning: 10am - 1pm. This role would suit someone with some knowledge or experience of welfare benefits issues and a willingness to learn, with confident IT skills and excellent communication skills. The role will mainly involve helping people apply for Universal Credit online or carrying out benefit checks using an online tool and may also involve assisting some of our drop-in clients to use computers, smart phones or tablets to access the internet.
In return we can offer you the opportunity to use/develop your skills working 1to1 with people within a friendly and supportive team. We offer full training and induction and on-going support for the role.
Assessment Buddy volunteers
This is a new role for NBAC - offering support to vulnerable clients to attend assessments for their Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claims. Many people get extremely anxious about the assessment process and would benefit from someone who could offer support and encouragement on the day; this role will involve arranging with clients to meet them and accompany them to their appointment in central Bristol and to be a reassuring presence during the assessment appointment. No set day or times - flexibity will be key!
Minibus Driver: Shopping trips
We offer older people from the local community of Lockleaze/Horfield an oportunity to head to one of the larger supermarkets on alternate Friday mornings - both for cheaper shopping and as an opportunity to meet and socialise - and are keen to recruit a minibus driver to collect and return those attending, on alternate Fridays. If you enjoy helping older people, have a clean driving licence and have the time to spare we can offer you MIDAS (minibus driver) training (if you don't already have it) and the opportunity to become a valued member of the shopping club volunteer team.
We are also keen to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining our trustee team. We currently have 2 vacancies and would particularly welcome interest for one of the vacancies from anyone with previous experience of being a treasurer. The trustees meet monthly on a Wednesday, early evening, for 2 hours here in Lockleaze. For more information click here or please call Sally/Helen on 0117 9515751.
