What does the role involve?
Do you enjoy a cup of tea and a chat? Looking at old photographs, playing board games, doing jigsaw puzzles? Going for a walk or visiting a garden centre? Do you have a few hours to spare each week?
We have over 100 respite and befriending volunteers, they enable Carers to take some time out from their caring role on a regular basis by spending time with the person they look after.
We try to make sure that we match each volunteer with someone that shares similar interests, giving the relationship the best opportunity to be beneficial and long lasting.
Volunteers usually spend time at the Carer’s home on the same day and at the same time each week. Sometimes the role may involve taking the cared for person out for a walk or to a day activity.
We provide full training and reimburse expenses.
Nimber is a community delivery service that matches items being sent with travellers going the same way. You post what you'd like to buy, and we notify bringers who travel that route. When someone can help they will make you an offer.
Once you receive an offer, arrange pickup and delivery times with the bringer, accept the offer and wait for your items to arrive at your door.
Your card is never charged until your item has been successfully delivered, and there is no cost for posting a request.
