Description

Make a real difference to your community
People living with a serious, long-term or terminal illness often struggle with loneliness and could do with some extra support. Compassionate Neighbours can really make a difference. They are a network of trained volunteers who are willing to offer their time, companionship and support to people living in their community who are coping with serious illness.

Compassionate Neighbours can help others by:
• Offering companionship, emotional support and a listening ear
• Providing practical support, such as making a cup of tea
• Helping them to stay connected to their friends and the community
• Directing them to important support services to help them get through this difficult time

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Problem solving/Creativity

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

The Training

We give you the opportunity to explore how you can use your compassion to help others and give you the confidence to support people in your community.

Once you have completed an application form, we will ask you to sign up to one of the courses
