Side by Side is a volunteer led 1-2-1 service that enables people with dementia to get out and about in the community. The Volunteer Supporter role supports those 1-2-1 volunteers during their induction stage and on an on-going basis.
Volunteer Supporters aged 16+ ensure that our volunteers are assisted through their induction. They help volunteers to complete their training, collect relevant documents from volunteers, act as a ‘buddy’ & answer queries, assist with any development needs they have in future and maintain records. The role also involves arranging group support meetings for Side by Side volunteers once a quarter.
Having a good experience when joining an organisation is essential in keeping volunteers with us in the long term, this role is key in ensuring new volunteers have a positive experience so we can build a strong volunteering team, and support people with dementia to carry on doing the things they enjoy.
The minimum weekly time commitment required is 2 hours. Full training is provided and travel expenses are reimbursed.
An informal discussion, references and a disclosure and barring check will be required. Ref 412
