Do you have a few hours a week to spare, to help out with our lunch and locality clubs?
The clubs operate on a daily basis across Monmouthshire.
You’ll be travelling on our minibus to help the service users on and off, and helping them into the club venue. The clubs run for 3 hours or so through lunchtime and early afternoon and you would be helping with activities and serving refreshments.
Ideally you’ll have some experience of working with vulnerable older people but enthusiasm and a sense of empathy is much more important.
We are mainly looking for help with the sessions on Tuesday in Llangibby and Thursday in Plasmawr Residential Home, but would welcome help at any of the clubs- Monday at St Michaels’ Church, Wednesday at Llanfoist Village Hall and Friday at Llanellen Village Hall.
