We have exciting volunteering opportunities across a range of functions within Carers Trust East Midlands, and would love to welcome new Volunteers to come and work with us.

 

So could you be our next Volunteer?

 

Volunteers are an essential and valued part of the Carers Trust East Midlands team.

Can you bring your enthusiasm & energy to allow us to promote a better sense of wellbeing for both carers and those they cared for?

 

If so, we have a wide variety of roles and opportunities to suit you.

 

Where you can help

Community volunteers:

The Volunteer support service provides support by giving a break to those who have a caring responsibility for a husband, wife, partner, parent, relative or friend.  We offer a befriending service (no personal care is involved) where you will visit people in their own homes usually for 2-3 hours on a weekly or fortnightly basis.

 

Our thorough assessment process which takes into account, location, personality and availability, allows us to make a suitable match, which we feel is essential for everyone involved.

 

You will be invited to meet our team for an informal chat, attend our certificated training day and ensure you receive on-going support. Travel expenses will be paid for any visits you make.

Other opportunities involve

Helping out at Carers Support Groups:

There are a variety of these groups across the county, who always welcome a new face, especially people who can help with chatting to carers. The aim is to be able to provide a safe and supportive environment for them to share their caring experiences.

 

This allows peer support, where carers not only share experiences & knowledge, but also enhance their own coping skills.

 

We also provide care through various Day Centres where occasional volunteering opportunities may arise.

 

Helpdesk Support:

We can offer a fantastic opportunity to volunteer alongside our Support Workers who provide help & advice to carers over the phone. You will be volunteering within an experienced and enthusiastic team providing much needed support to carers across the region. You will receive full training in this volunteering role. Experience of using IT is essential.

 

How to volunteer with us

As a volunteer, we understand the need for flexibility, so you choose how often you wish to give your time. Although you don’t need any formal qualifications to become a volunteer, it is important that you are understanding, patient and a good listener.
