Job details

Bilingual Volunteer Befriender

Volunteer befriending is the most popular activity undertaken by our volunteers and this is due to the flexibility and satisfaction the role gives.

Our volunteer befrienders offer a range of help including visitingour residents for a coffee and a chat, reading the newspaper or a gripping novel, or provide guidance on how to  usea computer.

As a volunteer befriender you'll be matched with a resident in our care home and you can fit visiting around your other commitments and responsibilities.

We offer a package of training and development to all our volunteers to equip them with the basic skills and knowledge for working with older people, such as Dementia Awareness.

Visiting can be a source of great personal satisfaction, plus provides enjoyment and fun for the volunteer as well as the person being visited. Many of the older people we support have life experiences and histories that can fascinate and enthral making an hour or two can fly by.

We are searching for a Welsh speaking volunteer who would be able to assist us with our Coffee Shop activities with our residents.
