Independent Living Volunteer – Helping others to live an independent life

We are looking for volunteers to assist us to share key knowledge, awareness and advice with elderly/disability community groups. The volunteers will be spreading the word and providing advice about key equipment that can dramatically assist to improve the lives of those living independently. 

There is so much equipment out there that can help people improve their day to day lives. Volunteers will play a vital role in explaining to local community groups what equipment is out there and where to get it. 

The volunteer coordinator will provide all the training so there is no need to be an expert.

Availability Details

As a volunteer you decide when you volunteer and what talks you want to go on so it’s very flexible all we ask is for a minimum of two talks a month. So great for people that work full-time, stay at home parents, retired and unemployed as a lot of talks are during the day so people that are retired or out of work are great. But it’s very flexible as it’s not a set time to come in every week.
