Befriending with Respite

We are looking for befriending with respite volunteers to help support unpaid Carers with their caring role.

This service gives Carers the opportunity to have some time to themselves, usually around three hours a week on the same day at the same time. By having a regular, set time, Carers are able o look forward to their break and plan what to do with their time. The service also benefits the person that is being looked after, providing them the opportunity to spend time with a volunteer who has similar interests and experienced.

We are also looking for Healthcare Respite volunteers. These are slightly longer sits, up to 4 hours. This allows the Carer to attend their own healthcare appointments. This could be a one-off appointment or a course of treatment over several weeks

There is no personal care involved in the role. Full training is given, and expenses paid.

The role requires you to be in direct contact with vulnerable adults, so you will need a DBS check before you are able to commence. The Association of Carers will assist in the application process and cover the cost.

We cover the whole of East Sussex and ensure that volunteers are matched with families in their area.
