Volunteer Home Visitor
We are committed to supporting our blind veterans no matter where they are. By providing regular companionship, social interaction and building a positive one-to-one relationship you can help to reduce the effects of isolation so commonly experienced by our veterans. Your positivity, friendliness and communication can make the world of difference to their lives.
By popping by once a week or fortnight to see a veteran in their area, home visitors are a friendly face that can make all the difference. A visit could be a simple chat and a cup of tea, helping out with odd jobs around the home that can otherwise be a struggle for our veterans to complete or getting out and about in the local area. You will never be asked to do any personal care.
Volunteers need to be able to travel independently to and from our veteran’s home. Our veterans live across the Wakefield area, willingness to drive and access to a car would be of an advantage.
Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and understand the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries. The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but we ask that you are reliable and punctual for our veterans.
