Help ENRYCH Members to get outside and enjoy some fresh air!
Befriending / Visiting volunteer needed for ENRYCH Berkshire
We are looking for friendly Volunteers to help ENRYCH Members enjoy a leisure activity or interest of their choice. Volunteers play an incredibly important role in helping members to be active and independent.
We are looking for volunteers to help ENRYCH Members to get outside and enjoy some fresh air! This may be going for a walk, help them with their shopping or accompany them to a café. Assistance required carrying bags, pushing wheelchairs and being a supportive guide for confidence.
Many of our members are housebound without the help of a volunteer. We are looking for volunteers to help our members enjoy being outside again post Lockdown.
You are not on your own, we support all our volunteers and will provide you with the knowledge and training that may be required.
