You don’t have to have certain skills or talents – it’s of great value to our residents and clients just to have company sometimes.
Activities are run every day across our residential care facilities and day clubs. You could help set up and run a group, such bingo, scrabble, bridge, cards, crafts, model building, games, painting and social/conversation groups.
Transport lively group outings on the Goodwin minibuses, assist groups, or chauffeur seniors to important appointments. We welcome volunteers with an endorsed license (i.e. able to drive more than a 12 seater bus), who can help drive the Goodwin bus fleet for group outings.
Help bring church or prayer services to those who can’t get to them. Assist with weekly services at any of our villages. Various faiths.
Turn isolation into joy by helping a non-English speaker express their needs and enjoy a conversation. Rare dialects needed!
Help residents stay in touch with distant loved ones via the internet, or update with tech.
Arts, craft and music
There are always opportunities to help with art, craft or even give a short musical performance.
Carers and students
Considering a career in care or nursing? Gain invaluable on-the-job experience!
Bring in pets or petting animals to connect with residents in special ways.
A cuppa and conversation
Company and conversation can be all a person needs to brighten their day! We welcome anyone who’d like to spend some time. You can also provide company for clients being transported on the bus to attend Goodwin facilities and on their return home in afternoon.
