Descripción del proyecto:

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.

Volunteers may be required to accompany residents on activity weekends and short holidays, as well as providing support to those service users who have regular work, education or volunteering commitments. Volunteers will support groups of people with art and craft, gardening, cooking, exercise and social clubs and outings. While it is a lot of fun going out with residents, it is also very challenging as volunteers experience first hand the issues faced by people with disabilities everyday.

Alojamiento, manutención, transporte etc.:

Accommodation is separate from resident areas and reached by a set of stairs. There is a bedroom each, shared lounge, toilet, bathroom. Plated meals will be provided by the main kitchen for midday and evening meals, 7 days week. Ingredients will be provided to make snacks and breakfasts. A food allowance will be given during holidays. Freshfields Cheshire Home is in Formby, a small town a few miles north of Liverpool. It is a small town with population 25,000 with good schools and a small high street with shops, cafes and restaurants. Liverpool is 30 minutes away by rail.

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 will use their existing skills in a different context. They will use their social, practical and communication skills, to do everyday things e.g. getting to know people, helping them with an activity, celebrating a birthday, taking residents shopping, making drinks, etc.


Perfil del voluntario:

EVS volunteers’ tasks will vary over a 35 hour week according to the routine the home is scheduled for that period. It is important that the volunteers are eager to learn and have an interest in working with people with disability. Simultaneously, it can be demanding and emotionally difficult to support people with disabilities, and require patience, understanding and confidence. It is therefore an advantage if the volunteers have some experience with and/or exposure to disability prior to their placement so they have better idea of what to expect. It is essential with good English skills.
