Descripción del proyecto:
Seven Rivers have 29 residents, with a range of disabilities: most of them need the use of a wheelchair. Overseas volunteers help support our staff teams in providing an active, involving and stimulating environment for our residents. Through our overseas volunteers, disabled people in our care homes are able to access their local community services and social opportunities more easily and regularly, thus improving their independence and quality of life. This means that in their roles overseas volunteers are engaging in a wide range of activities both inside and outside the home. EVS volunteers will support our staff teams in providing an active and stimulating environment for adults with learning and/or physical disabilities, which will ensure that they can fulfill their long-term personal goals in accordance with the person-centered plan. EVS volunteers will support disabled people at Sever Rivers to access their local community, its services and social opportunities.
Alojamiento, manutención, transporte etc.:
Volunteers’s accommodation is located on the top floor of Seven Rivers, the lift only takes you up so far then there are a few steps: this makes it unsuitable for wheelchair users or people who are visually impaired. Between the bedrooms is a small lounge area with TV, DVD, Fridge and kettle. We have 3 bedrooms: 1 with en-suite bathroom, and 2 with a shared bathroom next door.
Formación durante el proyecto:
Thorough training on working with vulnerable adults is provided to all our volunteers, and Leonard Cheshire Disability staff helps volunteers during the induction process to understand each individual. Risk assessments ensure that volunteers are not asked to contribute outside of their capability or boundaries.
Volunteers acquire a range of knowledge, skills and experience including a greater understanding of the issues affecting disabled people.
Perfil del voluntario:
We are looking for enthusiastic people with a good sense of humour who enjoy working with people and working as part of a team. Some of our residents find it difficult to understand those with strong accents, so someone with good English skills and understanding would be desirable. We are interested in hosting EVS Volunteers who are keen to learn about disability issues and support. While any previous experience in disability support, healthcare or social work will be an asset, this is not essential.
