How does it work?
As a volunteer you can choose what you would like to help with and how much time you can give.
Villagers needing assistance call a
central number [which is manned by a volunteer] and ask for help. Requests are often for help with transport, shopping, gardening,
cooking, befriending, small jobs [like changing a light bulb] etc.
The phone holder then looks at the database of volunteers under
the task requested e.g. shopping and calls a volunteer on the list to see if they can help.
Thats it youre not pressured but we
are very grateful for any help you can give. We provide you with official ID, a volunteers handbook and contact numbers for you. You
will need a DBS certificate if you dont already have one, but we can organise that for you. We publish a regular newsletter to keep
you updated on the scheme and have occasional social events so that you can meet other volunteers.
