Our Lively Living Activity and Lunch club in Woodley offers clients an opportunity to meet up with friends as well as have a nourishing meal. We want our clubs to be a comfortable and welcoming place for our clients to visit – the well-being and enjoyment of our clients is of first importance to us. We would expect our volunteers to work with us to achieve this aim.
Our club is run in Alexandra Place Sheltered Housing residence where we serve succulent food prepared by the canteen for our clients
Most volunteers work weekly, but we are always happy to consider other arrangements such as working every other week. Volunteers will report to the club’s member of staff responsible for the running of the club on that day, and will be expected to work within the charity’s guideline.
Key Responsibilities may include:
- Setting up – arranging tables and chairs as necessary, setting tables.
- Ensuring any clients with mobility problems are able to access the dining area.
- Welcoming clients as they arrive.
- Preparing and serving hot and cold drinks.
- Serving meals or handing out rolls and cakes.
- Push wheelchair clients short distances.
- Be friendly and caring.
- Have the ability to empathise with older people.
- Have a flexible attitude.
