Advice Support Volunteers (Home Visits)
Would you be interested in offering one to one advice support to older people in their homes? This service is aimed at those unable to access our service through ill health, disability or mobility issues. The role could include assessing what support people may be entitled to, helping people complete forms to apply for benefits such as Attendance Allowance and Pension Credit or looking at ways people can save money through best deals around utilities. If you can offer excellent communication skills, some knowledge or experience of benefits (although not essential) and are willing to travel across the north Bristol area for home visits we would be very keen to hear from you. We will provide all training and support and ask for a commitment of 4 hours per week/fortnight.
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 support to become a valued member of the shopping club volunteer team.
Community Navigator volunteers
Our Community Navigator project - to connect older people with their communities - is now looking to recruit a team of volunteers to visit people in their homes, provide relevant information and signposting support and perhaps acompany them to local activities or services as required. If you would like to be part of this innovative project designed to make a difference to the lives of older people and are keen to develop your knowledge of the local services, groups and activities that could support our clients do please get in touch to find out how you can get involved. We are looking to recruit to the following areas: Avonmouth, Lawrence Weston, Henbury, Brentry, Southmead and Stoke Bishop.
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. If you would like more information please call Sally/Helen on 0117 9515751.
