As an Information & Advice volunteer you could provide support and make a real difference to older people in Mid Devon

What do Information & Advice volunteers do?

Our I&A volunteers assist clients in applying for Attendance Allowance. As the application process is quite time consuming and can seem quite daunting, this is both a huge relief to clients and an excellent way to support our service.

What you will get out of it

  • Volunteers help clients obtain financial support, making a very real difference to their day-to-day lives
  • Help people who are vulnerable to retain their independence
  • Work with and be supported by a strong team of volunteers and professionals
  • Volunteering improves your mental wellbeing and can reduce stress and anxiety

What is expected of me?

Volunteers will need to be able to give three hours a week or more, plus time for training.

Information & Advice volunteers will be given full training and support, including shadowing and supervision.

There is an informal interview process, and we will ask for references and a DBS check. An induction session will follow.
