Volunteer Vacancies with Age UK Blackburn with Darwen for September 2015

 

  • Stepping Stones

We need volunteers to befriend and support older people who have recently experienced a traumatic event such as bereavement, long stay in hospital, recovery from an operation etc.  by befriending you can help improve their self confidence and give them the support they need to get back to doing things how they did before the event.

  • Dementia Buddy

We have many older people who like to attend our Ageing Well activities such as bowling, or walking or swimming, but have early onset dementia. We need volunteers to take them to the activity, stay during the participation (or join in themselves) and make sure that person gets home safe and sound.

  • Visiting/befriending

The older people who are on our waiting list for this service are usually frail, disabled, isolated and have many health issues, they are usually unable to get out of the house and the only people they ever see are their carers (paid not family) and health professionals. Volunteers visit and chat to them for a couple of hours a week about life the universe and everything! From Football to knitting, to films to food.

  • Advice & Information (General)

Based in the Library you would give advice to older people on a wide range of topics from benefits, to non residential care, consumer advice and Financial matters (you will be given training)!

Volunteers are needed to go out to people’s homes who cannot get into the library to access the types of advice listed above.

  • Ageing Well – IT support (Outreach)

Visiting their home,  you will teach older people how to use  an iPad, or laptop, then how to Skype, use email and access the internet, even teach them how to use Facebook and Twitter. This is part of a project to combat loneliness and isolation.

Gain a recognised qualification in sports coaching  by working closely with our Ageing Well Team, from swimming to Scuba Diving, exercising and indoor skydiving, plus many other activities they provide to older people.

We need volunteers to assist staff with the activities and  help with mealtimes.

  • Living Well – Here to Help Project
