Job description

Have you been searching for Volunteer jobs or Volunteering work or perhaps you have been searching for Part-Time Jobs in the Chesterfield area of Derbyshire? It is a pleasure knowing there are people like you looking to make a difference!

Making a Difference

We are looking for Part-Time Paid Volunteers, Befrienders & Companions, so if you live in the communities of Chesterfield, Dronfield, Bradway, Brimington, Staveley, Totley, Walton, Wingerworth, then we would love to welcome you to the team.

You will be carefully matched and introduced to an older adult within your local community, and you will be providing companionship led care and support to them within their own home. 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. Some people worry about personal care, but people also have the wrong idea what personal care means – if this is something you are unsure about, we can explain this to you once you apply.   

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. You could -

  • Arrive with a smile for an early morning call.
  • Prepare breakfast and assist someone with their morning routine whilst chatting away!
  • Assisting with morning or evening routine, including helping with washing or dressing.
  • Prompt to take medication.
  • Preparing lunch together, taking care of their nutrition is important.
  • Maybe prompting them to use the toilet, to keep their routine.
  • Going on outings, hospital visits or visiting the shops.
  • End of the day companionship, hot drink, and chat before bedtime.

Key Information

  • £10.20 per hour plus Holiday Pay, Mileage & Pension.
  • Full-time & part-time available 7am – 10pm (From 15 Hours per week).
  • Overnight visits also available.
  • Mornings, lunchtimes, evenings, & alternate weekends. (Regular weekly availability).
  • Regular clients so you can build a long-lasting relationship.
