Description

Hello! We are My Home Life, a UK-wide initiative that promotes quality of life and delivers positive change in care homes for older people.

We’re particularly looking for support in our communications and events in particular:

1) Telephoning care homes to let them know of all the free materials on line to support their practice

2) Phoning care homes to gather good practice stories that can be written up as blogs

3) Helping plan and run events for care home managers

4) Helping us with our social media activity



We can be quite flexible about time commitment, but it would be helpful if you were available for some hours on one or two days a week

We are open to applications from people from all walks of life: from current students to retirees, and anyone in between. If you’re interested in some time developing your career plans and CV-building during your volunteering placement, we’d be happy to support that.

This is an unpaid voluntary position, though travel expenses from London Zones 1-6 could be covered.
