Job Title: Volunteer for the Home Support Service
Your helping hand can make a difference to someone's life!
The Home Support service assists people affected by HIV and/or Hepatitis C in their homes, when their illness or side-effects of medication makes housework too difficult. You will help with cleaning and decluttering, as well as one-off tasks such as gardening, painting, and DIY (dependent on volunteers’ skills). The service is delivered in pairs or groups, so is a really sociable, fun and rewarding role! All equipment will be provided, and any expenses will be covered.
The time committment is variable as it can be weekly, fortnightly, ad-hoc or even one-off.

-The role is flexible and can be shaped around you depending on your skills and availability.
-You will get regular support and comprehensive training, including First Aid.
-Current volunteers love the social aspect of the role and the opportunity to meet new people.
-Volunteers do not need any previous knowledge of HIV or Hepatitis C, nor do they need specific experience working with children, as full training is provided.
-Reliable and organised.
-Able to keep client confidentiality.
-Be mindful of working in someone’s home.
