Health All Round has announced that they are looking for volunteers to offer Bespoke Befriending to isolated older people living in Gorgie, Dalry, Saughton, Stenhouse and the surrounding areas.
Our new Bespoke Befriending service will offer a tailor-made approach to befriending. We recognise that every person is individual and unique, no matter what age you are. Our volunteers will meet up with an older person, find out what types of interests they have and then accompany them to social groups, chats over cups of tea, exhibition, walks outdoors, walking football, whatever it may be that helps them to access the world around them.
We are looking for warm, caring individuals who can volunteer a couple of hours per week to meet up with an older person and re-connect them to a community that cares. You will be accompanying older people to activities with their local community or home visiting the most isolated older clients. You won’t be alone, Health All Round friendly staff team will be with you, supporting you all the way. We offer training as well as expenses for all our befriending volunteers.
What you will get out of it?
- It’s a direct way to make a difference to someone’s life.
- You get to support a great cause, while giving something back to your community.
- You get to be part of a wider, friendly team.
- Volunteers say it’s fun, and you might make a new friend
- Agreed expenses.
