Volunteer with Health All Round

Health All Round has announced that they are looking for some volunteers to help in their office and as an evening receptionist.

Health All Round is a registered charity promoting physical, emotional and social wellbeing in the local community through activities including community groups, exercise classes, counselling, walking groups, healthy eating advice and other forms of one-to-one and group support. They work to reduce health inequalities in the local area and aim to continually develop our services in consultation with the local community. We are committed to diversity and equality and welcome volunteers from all sections of society.

Office volunteers are a vital part of our project. You will cover reception and assist in the day to day running of the office, including: answering phones, greeting clients, carrying out paperwork and filing, printing and photocopying and designing and developing leaflets and posters. There are often quiet times where you can take a break and read or use the internet. We are looking for someone who is able to cope with significant quiet spells. Free training and help with future employment provided.

Expenses Detail: Basic travel expenses will be paid for.

Frequency & Commitment: 4 hours per week, 10am – 2pm (on either Monday, Wednesday or Thursday)

Minimum Age: Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.

The evening reception role involves greeting clients, making therapists welcome, organising the diary, opening the building and locking up. Though essential to the project, this is not a very busy role and there will be significant periods of quiet time while clients are in with therapists. This role would suit someone who is confident, indepdenent and happy to fill in quiet time with their own activities such as reading, studying, knitting, etc. In return for your time we can provide a range of free training, references for employment & basic travel expenses.

Expenses Detail: Basic travel expenses paid monthly.

Frequency & Commitment: 3 hours per week on Tuesday evenings

Minimum Age: Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
