Helping you to help others.

OPP OF THE DAY: Social Helper – Wordsley Housing Society

Are you able to spare a few hours a week to offer our residents new social opportunities and enhance their wellbeing?

Helpers could support in a number of ways and here are a few examples:

  • Accompanying residents on shopping trips
  • Popping out to a café or pub for a social drink
  • Encouraging people to take gentle exercise e.g. a stroll along the canal
  • Helping with craft activities or bingo, games nights
  • Providing one-to-one befriending
  • Helping in our garden and growing on our allotment
  • Escorting on day trips or short breaks

Ideally we would like helpers to be able to come along on a regular basis, perhaps once per week

Our volunteers and clients are important to us so we take great care to ensure that we recruit and train the right people, with this in mind we carry out all necessary recruitment procedures including asking our volunteers to complete an application form, following this we will carry out a DBS check and request two references.
