Closing Date: 25 February 2018

Other Job Ref Numbers: 18868CRJ

Short Job Description:

About the Service: Creative Support is opening a new Living Well Centre in Droylsden, Tameside. The new space acts as an office for the staff running our Living Well at Home service in Droylsden. The service is for older people, who may have mobility issues or other care needs, who require support in their own home.

The centre also has a space to be used for activities which will be open to our service users and the wider community. We are currently developing a weekly timetable of regular activities in this space.

Purpose of the role: We are looking for Volunteer Activity Assistants to help run activities in the new Living Well Centre. You will help to set up activities, deliver sessions and engage service users to get the most out of the activities.

The activities may include arts and crafts, playing board games, bingo, quizzes, arm chair exercises, coffee mornings, and any other ideas you may bring with you. This is a great opportunity to take part in fun and interesting activities, meet new people, and engage with older people in the local community to help reduce loneliness.

There will also be opportunities to lead your own activity sessions – but only if this is something you would like to do, and feel confident and comfortable with.

Suggested Time Commitment: We would recommend a time commitment of 2 hours per week. The service is open 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday-Friday.
