Job Advert

Do you enjoy a good natter and a catch up?  Could you spare a few hours every other month? 
 
We are looking for an outgoing volunteer to support a lady on the Mencap Visiting Service. 
 
The lady we support would like nothing more than for a visiting volunteer to come and take her out for a cuppa and a bit of cake at the local Morrisons in Kirby-in-Ashfield.  She is very sociable and has a passion of WWE wrestling and nail polish.  We are looking for a dedicated volunteer who understands the positivity and the power a good natter and a cup of tea, and the difference this will make to someone with a learning disability. 
 
Mencap are strongly encouraging all our colleagues to have the Covid-19 vaccine as a way to help protect each other and the people we support.  This is especially important in direct support roles as evidence is starting to grow that the vaccine could help stop the spread of the virus, as well as protecting the person vaccinated from getting very ill.

In addition, it is mandatory that you take a lateral flow test on the day of your volunteering

 
If you would like more information about the volunteer role please see the role profile below or contact volunteering@mencap.org.uk

  • To feel fully supported in your role
  • Agreed out-of-pocket expenses to be reimbursed (e.g. travel)
  • The opportunity to meet new people and be part of a diverse team
  • The opportunity to learn new skills
  • To feel appreciated and valued for my contribution
  • Ongoing support from Volunteer Services Coordinator and Service Manager
