Have you been considering Volunteering jobs? Do you have spare time on your hands and would love to do something very rewarding near you? We are looking for people just like you in the Winsford area of South Cheshire to become Befrienders & Care Companions to older adults living in your local community.

Our older generation are very special, they have given so much and deserve to be looked after in their old age. We provide Companionship led care to Older Adults living in our local community to a very high standard. They choose when we come and what support they may need. This varies from just an hour-long visit getting them up, dressed and showered/ bathed/washed to a full day out, or a few hours playing bingo at the day centre. We even bake cakes!

Are you who we are looking for?

Do you?

  • Drive and have access to your own car?
  • Have lots of life skills and plenty to share with someone?
  • Have spare time any mornings, lunchtimes, early evenings, or weekends?
  • Live in the Winsford area or close by?
  • Want a part-time Job that is not only rewarding but makes a difference to someone else?
  • Have a fantastic personality and are great company?
  • Are you caring, empathetic, patient and understanding?

Would doing this job every day give you enormous satisfaction, lots of people that choose to work for us have had previous careers in all sectors, we have retired Nurses, Police Officers, Hairdressers, just to name a few, and also people that have spent lots of years bringing up their own family. Many people join us after looking after a loved one or a friend and realised how rewarding it was!

Would you like to know more?

I am sure you have lots of questions, don’t worry, first things first, please click on apply and send us your application. The employer would then contact you to tell you all about this fantastic opportunity, learn more about you and of course tell you about them!   If you do not have a CV just simply email us with a covering letter, including your name address & postcode, whether you are a car driver and some information about you!
