Revitalise is a national charity that has been providing respite holidays for disabled people and carers for over 50 years. We have three Revitalise centres; in Chigwell in Essex, Southampton and Southport, each providing a wide range of accessible activities, excursions and entertainment.
We are very lucky to have dedicated volunteers, who provide companionship and support to our guests, ensuring they have a truly unforgettable holiday and we would love you to join them. Our volunteers form a crucial part of the Revitalise team and our guests always tell us that a big part of what makes their holiday so special are the volunteers.
We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds from the age of 16 and our roles provide a valuable opportunity for young adults to learn important social skills, build confidence and make a positive impact. No experience is necessary so our varying levels of training mean our roles are suitable for students of any degree background; for students undertaking studies in areas of care or nursing and want to gain specific experience or those who simply want to try something new. We also provide assessments for students and references on request.
To have fun, make friends, boost your confidence and gain skills to support future career prospects please join our army of volunteers and help our guests have a truly revitalising break! http://revitalise.org.uk/volunteer/
We are dedicated to making sure that each and every guest has the break they need, and we simply couldn’t achieve this without our army of incredible volunteers. We provide 24-hour on call nursing care but it is our volunteers who are the magic ingredient of Revitalise and our guests so often tell us that it was the volunteers that made their holiday truly special!
We are looking for volunteers local to our centres to help out whenever they can; providing companionship and support at the centre or on excursions. You could spend time; chatting with guests, accompanying them on excursions, supporting at a coffee morning or with the activities that take place in the centre. There are endless possibilities of how you can get involved and we know we can find a role that suits you.
Join us and help make our guests’ holidays truly revitalising!
