Volunteers wanted for TLC Support Project

We need volunteers to work for a few hours a week in a small team.

group

Clapham Park Project’s “Time Loving Care” scheme aims to provide support for residents in the Clapham Park area before, during a period of acute illness. The project aims to help people to feel more supported and in control during a difficult and stressful period of illness or hospitalisation. The assistance we would provide would be similar to the traditional role of good neighbour or friend.  The service would not be a replacement for existing health or social services.

Help might include:

– visiting and supporting people when they experience difficulty managing their usual routines
– Checking the property is safe, preparing home for discharge and visiting people at home
– Signposting to community services and social activities
– Volunteers will be given training and support

Expenses will be reimbursed
All volunteers will be subject to an enhanced CRB check

A problem shared is a problem halved!     .
