Are you a whizz at organising and willing to do admin tasks? Could you spare a couple of hours a week to put your skills to good use for an organisation that is part of the Good Neighbours Network.
Whether you like to be given admin tasks with detailed instructions or have more autonomy in your approach to the tasks, you're the person we need.
Projects might be publicity-related such as discovering and contacting all the local support groups for specific health conditions which might render folk housebound; getting a notice into church magazines; organising doorstep deliveries using the Post Office... or whatever.
All of these tasks can be carried out at home. You would be included in regular Zoom meetings with other volunteers, progressing to physical meetings/socials as those become more common. If you prefer company during volunteer hours there is an option to work alongside the Group Leader in a home office which could be discussed. (The home office is big enough to sit socially distanced, it used to be a Dining Room.)
Excellent communication skills.
Clear speaking voice.
Integrity and being non-judgmental towards others.
Interested in people.
Happy to undertake training.
The role can be undertaken from home if the volunteer has limited mobility.
