Full and Part-Time Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion jobs Stafford, Staffordshire – No Experience Needed – car drivers essential.

Caring in your Community
If you live in or near to the communities of Stafford, Stone, Eccleshall, Cheadle, Blythe Bridge, or surrounding areas, then we would love to speak to you about joining our team.
Who will I support?
You will be carefully matched and introduced to the person you will be supporting, and you will share a great relationship together. Your visits will never be rushed, and they are never less than an hour, meaning you spend quality time with the person we match you with. Because you get to know one another well, the care that you would provide is never awkward, just natural.
As a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion, the care & support an individual requires varies greatly, after all everyone is unique! All our clients vary from being very independent, to some that need much more care and support.
“I worked as a Teacher for many years, but as I reached retirement age, I still wanted to work in the community. I discovered this organisation four years ago – not soon enough! I love my job, it’s part-time, so I have plenty of time to spend with my Grandchildren. I have a small number of clients, who have become good friends. I cannot believe I get to do this as “a job”! My client visits vary, some are housebound, and I offer them support within their home, do a food shop for them, and keep the home tidy. One of my ladies likes me to run her a bath, help her get in and out and wash her hair. One client just enjoys my company, and we have tea and cake and a good natter. I have a client, who I support with his journey living with dementia, we spend lots of time reminiscing and singing. I help keep him safe at home and prepare his meals.” Sue, Paid Volunteer & Companion.
