Active Ageing & Health Engagement Volunteer
We’re looking for someone who is a strong listener and an excellent communicator, with outstanding interpersonal skills, and a natural ability to teach and motivate others.
We want a volunteer who can help older people, while promoting a healthy lifestyle, improving mental wellbeing, encouraging the self-management of long-term health conditions—and reducing the likelihood of winter sickness, and associated risk factors while committing to Stonewater’s policies and procedures.
The ideal candidate should have knowledge of long-term health conditions, and an understanding of how lifestyle factors can have an impact on health. An individual with a background in coaching and advocacy, for health and lifestyle related issues, would be ideal—complimented by a knowledge of mental health, winter sickness prevention, and the uses of assistive technology.
This opportunity comes with a number of training options and the chance to obtain a recognised qualification. You can volunteer from just one hour a week.
The role involves working with vulnerable adults and as such Stonewater will require appropriate background checks, ie via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
If you are interested in applying, please complete and return the application form and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
