About the role
Our community hub offers a safe, inclusive space where clients and community members can come and relax, socialise, and get some practical and emotional support from our staff and volunteers where it’s needed.
Our space is open to anyone over 18, but has a bit more focus on supporting wellbeing and mental health.
Some of our clients and community members face barriers to accessing our community activities – some of which include feeling anxious to participate or come in alone, or requiring physical assistance to get to the hub. We would like to reduce these barriers, and support people to overcome these barriers and social isolation.
By becoming a Community Connector, you will support people to get involved with our community activities.
Key role responsibilities include:
- Building relationships with clients
- Providing practical support to attendees (phone calls, meeting them and assisting them to come along to our activities and get home)
- Providing emotional support to attendees (talking, listening)
- Being present and supportive during community activities, to support clients to feel comfortable in the community space.
You don’t need any previous experience or knowledge to volunteer in this role. We’re simply looking for people who love working with people, who align with our values and who, most importantly, are open to learning.
Minimum of 6 months.
Monday-Friday, between 9am-5pm. You can be flexible with what hours you do, as community members will require support for different community activities throughout the day.
Support and Learning
You’ll receive tailored support from our Admin, Leaning and Community team and be working alongside our Session Leads whilst attending community activities. As with all our volunteer opportunities, you’ll also have access to a range of free, formal training opportunities including Mental Health First Aid, The Care Certificate and First Aid.
