Take a look at this rewarding opportunity for you to be directly involved in enhancing the well being of our community

Support volunteers needed for Creative Support in RG2

Would you like to make a direct impact on the community? We are looking for a reliable individual to help the tenants at Cedar Court run their coffee morning.

We have a lovely comfortable lounge area where tenants come together every Tuesday morning for a cup of tea and chat. Cedar Court is an extra care scheme for a wide range of adults over 55 including those with memory or mobility related challenges. The lounge area is an accessible place for everyone to come together as a community.

The tenants have asked for the support of a volunteer for making and bringing over the teas and coffees and would like to invite them to join for a chat. We have a well-equipped kitchen area next to the seating and a dishwasher to put the crockery afterwards.

We hope that this will be a rewarding opportunity for you to be directly involved in the well being of our community. As a Creative Support volunteer we encourage you to be part of our volunteer network. You will work closely with your named supervisor and have the opportunity to develop through our training.

We are proud to be an Investing in Volunteers’ organisation, showing our commitment to all volunteers.
