Making a Difference

We are looking for Part-Time Paid Volunteer & Care Companions. If you live in communities of Bath, Bradford Upon Avon, Corsham, Chippenham, Melksham, and surrounding areas of Somerset & West Wiltshire we would love to welcome you to the team.

  • 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

  • £10.60 per hour weekdays, £11.80 Weekends, plus mileage.
