South Glos. Sitting Service - 5th June 2014

Do you like spending time with people? Do you want to make a difference to someone in your community? Are you kind, caring, reliable and responsible?

The South Glos. Sitting Service is looking for people who can offer 2-3 hours of their time, weekly or fortnightly to spend with a cared-for person so that their carer can take a break. Carers often find their own health and well-being suffers due to the pressure of caring, so having a regular short break can make all the difference. Volunteers receive comprehensive induction, regular training and support; expenses are reimbursed. We have regular social events for all our volunteers, too!

The Carers’ Support Centre exists to provide support, information and advice to carers of any age living in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas.

For more information about this role, please contact Marilyn Crump, Sitting Service Coordinator for an informal chat.

We really look forward to hearing from you.
