Make a difference today!
Come and join the fun! We need friendly,
outgoing and welcoming individuals to assist at our local community group meet
Our members really enjoy getting together having a good chat about all
sorts of things over a cup of tea and a biscuit; they also like to invite
speakers to come along to the meetings to provide them with helpful advice and
information across a wide range of subjects. From time to time our members will
arrange a trip out together usually 2-3 social outings each year to places of
interest. The group meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month 2pm to 4pm
How can you help:
Our Friendly Group Volunteers are a fantastic support to our members,
but you can also benefit immensely by gaining new friendships and share this
wonderful experience together.
We would like you to come along to the group meetings each month and
support the members by chatting to them, making them cups of tea/coffee,
assisting in planned activities, helping to guide them in and out of the
building at the beginning and the end of the meetings, to and from the toilet
if required and accompany the group when they go out on the social outings.
Guiding the deafblind members will be required and full training is
provided. You may also be required to push a member’s wheelchair. Could you give a few hours a month to assist
in a fun packed meet up?
Having sight and hearing loss can at times be isolating and lonely,
however getting people together to enjoy each others company will ensure our
members don’t face this. A majority of our members at the group will
communicate with clear speech, or may have other communication methods.
