Home Visitor Volunteer required for Lauder area.

blind veteransBlind Veterans UK are looking for a volunteer to visit an Army Veteran in Lauder, Scottish Borders.

This veteran loves all things history and very much enjoys talking about this topic, in particular North American or Scottish history. Could you spare some time every couple of weeks to visit?

By popping by once a week or fortnight to see a veteran in their area, home visitors are a friendly face that can make all the difference to our veterans. A visit could be a simple chat and a cup of tea, helping out with odd jobs around the home that can otherwise be a struggle for our veterans to complete or getting out and about in the local area.

You will never be asked to do any personal care.

Although you will be working in the community independently, your manager is only a phone call away and there is a network of other volunteers for you to link in with too. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and understand the importance to confidentiality and relationship boundaries.

The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but we ask that you are reliable and punctual for our veterans. You will be fully trained and supported so you feel comfortable and confident in your volunteering.
