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 Kingsthorpe area of Northamptonshire. This is not a volunteer job, it is paid employment, but you could be exactly the type of person we are looking for!

No experience is required as excellent training will be provided. However, you must have a full UK driving licence and access to a vehicle.

What could you be doing in your spare time that is similar to Volunteering?

What about getting up every morning and going to see someone like May? May is a 96-year-old lady who had lived in her own home since her children were young, she lost her husband 20 years ago but has always stayed independent and outgoing mainly due to her large family, including 13 Grandchildren, and 14 Great Grandchildren. She lives in her own home and has really started to struggle with things that we all take for granted. She seems to be showing signs that she is in the early stages of Dementia.

You would visit May and get her up on a morning as she is terrified of the stairs, she also needs gentle reminders to wash, brush her teeth and to use the toilet, the dementia has affected her remembering to do some things, so it is almost like re-training the brain. May is such good company she has a cheeky sense of humour and she loves me taking her out for a spot of lunch or for a gentle stroll around Thornton Park! I visit her two or three times a week.

** May is just an example of the type of person we could help & support
