Volunteers for Onside needed

Onside a local charity which works across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, is looking for people to take on the role of a Relevant Persons Representative (RPR).

As an RPR the volunteer would be visiting a person just once every 6-8 weeks for no more than 1 hour. Volunteering would be local to where the volunteer lives.  Volunteers as an RPR are safeguarding the rights of vulnerable people who don’t have the mental capacity to consent to care or treatment.

Onside’s Volunteer Manager, Claire Watkins, said   “Our volunteers give their time, their passion and enthusiasm, this role is very worthwhile and rewarding.”

Volunteers are ordinary people of all ages and backgrounds they just need to be good listeners and have some time to give.  We also have further opportunities with advocacy, mentoring, café and book shop volunteering available.

 If you can picture yourself in the role of an Onside volunteer please call Claire Watkins – Volunteer Manager on 01905 27525 or email  claire.watkins@onside-advocacy.org.uk to find out more. This type of volunteering is flexible to fit with your life and circumstances. Free training (throughout the year) is provided and all expenses paid.

Background on charity:

  • Onside improves the lives of over 3000 vulnerable adults every year in Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
  • We provide free services to support adults facing disadvantage through mental and physical ill health, learning disability and old age. Eg. Depression, autism, learning difficulties
  • Onside employs over 50 people and has150 active volunteers
  • Onside is a Worcestershire based charity established in 1993 stemming from a belief that everyone has the right to be a valued human being and to be treated in a just and fair manner.

ROYAL VOLUNTARY SERVICE

Hello!

My name is Karen and I am posting on behalf of Royal Voluntary Service.

I am the Community Engagement and Development Worker for Herefordshire (and bordering areas of Powys, Worcestershire and Shropshire).

I am looking for volunteers with a little time to spare and who would like to benefit their community (in particular involving older people) by introducing a new activity in the area. From running a quiz in a community hall to exploring new ways to bring people together over food, or setting up a new hobby or interest group – this is a great opportunity for people, whatever their background, interest or passion, to share it with others with the backing and support of a national charity.

No previous experience is necessary and I will provide all new volunteers with the necessary support to set up their group. This includes a start-up fund, start-up support, training, insurance, and promotion, as well as ongoing support and guidance with legal, technical and financial matters.

If you interested and would like to do more in your community please contact me:

Email: karen.roberts@royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk
Many Thanks
