SummaryWe are looking for volunteers to assist at our peer support groups in various locations across Hertfordshire. And would love to hear from you!
Headway Hertfordshire support people with brain injuries. We are looking for individuals who would be willing to volunteer for 2 or 3 hours a week or fortnightly, at our peer support groups in either Watford, Stevenage, Letchworth, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Welwyn, Borehamwood, Waltham Cross and Hertford.
We are looking for individuals who will feel at ease meeting and talking with people and helping others to participate in a social setting, or you may have an interest in helping with arts and crafts, or have another hobby to share, above all you should be reliable, a good listener and communicator, able to make your own way to meeting places and have a positive and can-do approach to enabling activities for all.
We will provide an induction and will be able to offer free training in areas of interest to you.
Any incurred expenses will be paid.
Here are some comments from existing Volunteers
“As a retired person who lives on their own it gives me structure to my week, it can be challenging sometimes but also rewarding. The clients are always pleased to see you and are appreciative of what you do”.
“No two weeks are ever the same!”
“The clients are always ready to talk to you, so it helps to be a good listener"
“ I come away most weeks feeling a sense of achievement . It really widens your horizons !
