Health & Wellbeing Activity Volunteers

We are looking for passionate volunteers who can provide a complimentary session(s) in disciplines such as, Yoga, Meditation, Indian Head massage, Aromatherapy or Reflexology.

Volunteers will not be expected to offer all of the disciplines, rather if you can offer a one off session in one of the above, or any other related therapy, then we would welcome to the opportunity to work with you.

The aims of these sessions are to introduce residents to a variety of activities that promote positive health and wellbeing with friendly encouragement from staff and volunteers.

Volunteers will be provided with full support from staff and residents throughout. Times and locations are flexible to meet the needs of the residents and the availability of the volunteers.


Due to the nature of the tasks being undertaken relative skills and experience will be required. This would be an ideal opportunity for those who are looking to gain more experience in their field or for those who would like to promote their services to local residents.

We are looking for people who are friendly and welcoming. Many of our residents enjoy a good chat, so if you are a cheerful and outgoing person we'd love to hear from you.
