VOLUNTEER THERAPIST WITH THE BRIGITTE TRUST

Your skills... Hairstylist, Barber, Beauty consultant, Manicurist, Reiki practitioner Alternative therapist Our Vision is to launch a new wellbeing service

Our Vision... is to launch a wellbeing service offering the clients that we support some much needed pampering treats in the comfort of their own home as for many of them leaving home can be challenging.

You can make a real impact Having someone visit and either cut your hair, give you a gentle arm and hand massage, or to maybe have a manicure or an alternative therapy such as Reiki can make such a difference to someone’s wellbeing.

We cannot do this without your skills We need to find volunteer therapists who are prepared to give us maybe an hour a month of their time to bring joy to someone at a difficult time in their lives. The Brigitte Trust would of course reimburse any travel and other expenses. If you or anyone you know may be interested in helping us deliver this wonderful new service do please get in touch with us by filling in the Application form.

Mission Statement

The Brigitte Trust is a Queen's Award registered charity offering a free service of emotional support and practical help.  The service is normally offered face-to-face in the home supporting people and their carers when a life-threatening illness such as Cancer or Motor Neurone Disease has been diagnosed. Currently, and since first lockdown, our volunteers are offering telephone support, though in time we hope to return to the home visiting for which we are widely known. The Brigitte Trust is a trusted partner of Surrey County Council and over 400 referrals have been received from Community Responders throughout Surrey.  More volunteers are needed now to support people who have received a late diagnosis or delayed treatment.
