Assisting in craft and activity groups

The volunteer role may include assisting with running the activity or spending time one-on-one with particular residents to enable them to participate more fully.

As a Juniper Volunteer, you'll be well supported by Juniper staff so you don't feel out of your depth, and they will also be pleased to hear of your own special talents that you can bring to trigger the interest of our residents.

One to One Visiting

Living in a residential care facility brings about many feelings for our residents. Many feel safe and secure in the knowledge they are being cared for to the high standard set by Juniper, but some miss the social contacts they've had in the past.

The role of a one to one volunteer is important in helping break this sense of isolation and loneliness and residents appreciate have their own special visitor. Volunteers interested in this role should be prepared to commit for many months to ensure the residents do not experience frequent losses by churning of helpers and loss of special relationships.
