We are developing the services the Wellbeing centre offers and are keen to add to our existing volunteer resource in order that we can expand and develop what we provide for our patients.
We want to offer our patients choice and variety; activities could include the more traditional like art, craft, or gardening, but also playing games like chess or bridge with patients, music and singing, photography, dance and movement, or even a magic show or two. We will consider and try pretty much anything if it helps our patients to have improved feelings of wellbeing.
Your input is likely to be for 2-3 hours either on a morning or afternoon on certain days of the week which can be arranged. If you cannot commit on a regular basis, we would be happy to negotiate and agree specific dates for sessions.
The Volunteer Activities Co-Ordinator role involves working with the Wellbeing team leader to organise and manage a programme of engaging activities/events for patients attending the Wellbeing Centre.We need creativity, inspiration and enthusiasm!
The approximate time required for this role is initially 3-4 hours per week.
