Description

Love listening to stories? Then you'll love researching, planning and facilitating a weekly Reminiscence Group for older people living in sheltered accommodation. We're looking for volunteers to develop a programme of Reminiscence Activities around our residents' interests and experiences.
You will lead a regular group with an inclusive atmosphere where all members feel comfortable to contribute their stories and ideas.
This role is ideal for those with an interest in the past who are looking to build their research skills, as volunteers carry out ongoing research in response to the memories and
stories presented in the group. You can sharpen your organisation skills too, empowering older residents to run the group themselves and contributing to a Reminiscence Toolkit for use by other volunteers and staff.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence

  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Planning/Organising

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Volunteers receive a thorough induction and have access to any relevant in-house and external training.


Reasonable travel and lunch expenses are payable.
