As a Social Inclusion Volunteer, you will be connected with someone who has similar interests or experiences. Your role will provide companionship and support to find local activities and environments that nurture the client’s well-being. Research shows that people who are lonely or socially isolated have poorer mental health outcomes. You will help clients to participate with confidence in the community as they wish.
Ideally you will bring your friendly and good interpersonal skills to the role. This role will appeal to you particularly if you enjoy talking with someone about day to day interests and investigating community resources/groups/services.
You will be working in a supportive and inclusive team. You will receive opportunities for professional and personal development.
