Home Visitor Volunteer – Caersws, South Wales
Time Commitment: Couple of hours one morning or afternoon a fortnight
Do you have good organisational skills and would you like to
visit a blind veteran and her husband living in Caersws? Our
veteran would like help with filing and organising documents and
correspondence. Practical help such as this can make a real
difference to someone who is visually impaired and for whom simple
everyday tasks have become more difficult following sight loss. Our
veteran served with the WRAF and enjoys knitting, gentle walking
and audio books. Ideally you should be available for a couple of
hours one morning or afternoon a fortnight
We are looking for an enthusiastic and cheerful volunteer with a friendly and positive personality who can display patience and empathy when in the company of a visually impaired person. Reliability, punctuality and trustworthiness are very important in this role as are good listening and communication skills.
Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and able to travel independently to and from our veteran's home.
An understanding of the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries is key to this role. We will give you the necessary training, induction and support to be confident and enjoy your volunteering. Our veteran has pet cats.
