Support at Home Volunteer (British Red Cross)

Throughout Northern Ireland

If you are caring, compassionate and up for a natter, this could be the role for you! The aim of the Support at Home service is to place the person at the centre of what we do and help them get through a crisis by offering positive encouragement, practical help and emotional support, for a few days or for longer, depending on their needs. 

 Typical tasks include:

  • Visiting the service user on their arrival home from hospital. 
  • Keeping someone company for a few hours at a time. 
  • Helping with practical tasks like shopping, collecting prescriptions and light meal preparation. 
  • Sitting with the service user and relieving the relative or carer of continuous care. 
  • Keeping paper records of contact and activities undertaken with the service user. 

Must be over 18 years old and have a clean driving license and access to own transport. 

Full training will be provided.
