Indulge your social side and help keep an older person connected to the community.
Are you creative and love to sew? Or do you enjoy working with your hands? Then we have the role for you. Want to share your skill with others? Come along and join the Stepping Stones group.
Come and spend time with our older folk and brighten their day (and yours!) with entertainments and social activities and be a part of their community!
Are you passionate about shopping? Do you enjoy helping people find 'just what they're looking for'? Then this might be the role for you!
Do you have a car, driver licence, and a little time to spare? Help older people get to their local social club to enjoy activities including discussions, presentations from guest speakers, singing and music, craft, outings, cooking and meals.
Do you want to make a positive difference to a young person? Friendly and reliable volunteers who can relate to children are required as big buddies to enhance the life of a young person in this fun and rewarding role.
