Independent living: help people at home

From giving people confidence or delivering wheelchairs to taking someone to hospital, our volunteers help people to be independent.

Volunteering gives me a sense of being part of my local community. It gives me a feeling that I'm helping people who otherwise don't really have any help available.”
Lizzie Laessing, volunteer

Typical roles include:

Support at home volunteer

Sometimes people need help in their own home for a few days or weeks – perhaps following a hospital stay, or if their usual carer is absent. Could you pop round for a cup of tea or help them with shopping?

Hand, arm and shoulder massage volunteer

Help people relax. Reduce stress in emergencies. Alleviate pain for those feeling anxious, tense or ill at home or in hospital.

Mobility aids volunteer

Your role could include:
• demonstrating how to use and maintain our wheelchairs and other mobility aids
• delivering and collecting equipment
• supporting other volunteers in the service.

Transport support volunteer

Do you own a car and have a little spare time to help someone who would really appreciate it? Our transport support volunteers give invaluable assistance to those who can't get about easily or use public transport.
