Home from Hospital Support Worker

Volunteers (Home Care)

Are you passionate about supporting older people to have active and joyful lives?

We are currently recruiting:

Enthusiastic and creative Volunteer Activities Support Workers

This role presents a unique opportunity to join an award winning charity, that has developed a new service and places older people at the heart of everything we do, ensuring best practice in meeting individual needs and the provision of outstanding care.

You’ll have an empathy with the needs of older people and understand the importance of treating our Service Users with dignity and respect. You will also have a sense of fun and a natural ability to help them make the most out of everyday life.

We want to give older people opportunities to meet up with old friends and make new ones while having some fun and sharing common interests. Lunch clubs bring older people together to enjoy a hot nutritious meal and socialise with friends at the same time. Lunch clubs may play host to music, bingo or guest speakers, but we will actively encourage volunteers to speak to service users and design sessions together and develop friendly and respectful relationships.

As with any position working with vulnerable people you will be subject to a safer recruitment process, reference checks and a clear disclosure and barring service check will be part of this process. These costs will be met by Five Lamps.
