Description

As a volunteer you would be:
Facilitating discussions about a new book each week with residents

Encouraging residents to suggest a new book up for discussion each week

Exploring books which might come from residents' country of origin, which then leads to reminiscence opportunities

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence

  • Analytical/Research

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

All volunteers receive thorough in-house training in safeguarding, personal safety and introduction to boundaries, alongside optional courses which well equip volunteers before they begin.
