Volunteers needed for new project
Living Well Waltham Forest is a new project, due to start in September 2017. It is funded by Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (WF CCG) and London Borough of Waltham Forest and delivered by Age UK Waltham Forest, it aims to support residents of Waltham Forest to make small, positive changes to their lives and attain their goals in improving their lifestyle. The team consists of two paid staff (Health and Wellbeing Officers) and new teams of volunteers and working closely with the different health and social care teams as well as community/voluntary services.
Some residents will have very complex challenges and will require coordination of a range of support from various organisations whilst others may require simple actions such as signposting to services.
The Health and Wellbeing Officers and Volunteers will maintain regular contact, and will work together as a team. We are looking to recruit two new teams on volunteers consisting of Wellbeing Volunteers and Wellbeing Support Volunteers. Further information can be found on our volunteering page.
We Need Volunteer Trustees
Take a leading role, volunteer at Age UK Waltham Forest
Age UK Waltham Forest is one of the leading charitable organisations providing vital services and support to local older people in your area. We are currently looking for volunteer trustees to join our Board to help shape and lead our exciting work.
Too many older people in our community are lonely, isolated and not getting the opportunities they need to live life to the full. Being a volunteer Trustee, your expertise, ideas and decisions can really make a difference to their lives.
So, whether you are looking to gain new skills, get involved in your community, and have a real interest in the issues affecting older people we would love to hear from you! Anyone with skills in accountancy, management, and fundraising is particularly welcome.
The commitment would be a meeting once a month during the day. More information is included in the short application pack.
