Social Volunteer (non-residential)

Details Hide[-]

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!
