Renata has been somewhat over-protected by her Italian family. Her mother died not so long ago, after which Renata moved to Atwell. She works in supported employment but there are significant changes in the organisation, which will affect her. We are seeking a confident lady to develop a trusting friendship with Renata and be her citizen advocate. As well as enjoying time together it is hoped that her citizen advocate will help address her social isolation, connect her to her local community, and provide reassurance to help Renata reach her potential and get the most out of life. The hours are flexible to suit the volunteer and the role is intended to be long term.
