Seeking friendly female volunteer to accompany an ENRYCH Member to the swimming pool

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 a friendly female Volunteer to help accompany an ENRYCH Member to the swimming pool Assistance required carrying bags, pushing her wheelchair poolside and
helping steady her on the steps into the pool. You do not need to be in the water unless you wish to do so for yourself!

Support once a week would make a huge difference to her life, lack of help and
facilities during lockdown has had a huge impact on her physical health and pain levels.

You are not on your own, we support all our volunteers and will provide you with the knowledge and training that may be required.
