Summary

Volunteer Home Visitor for Blind Veterans - Cheltenham

Detailed description

Can you spare a few hours a week to brighten someone’s day? 


We are committed to supporting our blind veterans no matter where they are. Our community home visitors provide crucial social interaction for our veterans who can’t reach our centres, and can often feel isolated or lonely.  


Our member has an interest in planes and has previous links to the aerospace industry through Dowtys and would really appreciate a volunteer who may have links here or an interest in the aerospace industry who can visit and have a chat about these things over a cuppa. Our member also likes to keep occupied with his painting and drawing.


By popping by once a week or fortnight to see a veteran in their area, home visitors are a friendly face that can make all the difference to our veterans. A visit could be a simple chat and a cup of tea, helping out with odd jobs around the home that can otherwise be a struggle for our veterans to complete or getting out and about in the local area. You will never be asked to do any personal care. 


Although you will be working in the community independently, your manager is only a phone call away and there is a network of other volunteers for you to link in with too. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and understand the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries. The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but we ask that you are reliable and punctual for our veterans. You will be fully trained and supported so you feel comfortable and confident in your volunteering.
