The Carers Centre is always looking for volunteers to help promote the work that we do. Volunteers do not know all the answers to carers questions but are good listeners and usually have used our service themselves. We simply need volunteers, particularly in more rural communities, who can explain the types of services we offer.
We have vacancies for three types of volunteer role and all can be adapted to fit with our volunteers’ needs:
Volunteers to top up our leaflets and ensure current posters are displayed in community venues such as village hall and/or library notice boards, GP surgeries, pharmacies etc. (We can provide you with named contacts in surgeries and pharmacies). Approximately twice per year.
Volunteers to man pop-up information points in community venues for between 1 & 3 days during Carers Week in June.
Volunteers to man pop-up information points at specific community locations/events, such as GP vaccination clinics, farmers markets or local fund raising events such as church or community coffee mornings. Approximately 2 or 3 per year, in your own locality.
