The Brendoncare Foundation

Brendoncare aims to improve the quality of life for older people, and our growing local network of social/activity clubs are vital in combating loneliness and social isolation. They enable our members to develop relationship networks and each club aims to respond to the interests, needs, aspirations and choices of each individual.
All of our clubs are run by fantastic teams of volunteers and we’re currently looking for more people to get involved in your local area.
About the role
This is an opportunity to play a major role in the success of the club. Your main task will
be to engage with club members and existing volunteers to maintain and develop an
exciting programme with something interesting, engaging, entertaining, interactive and
enjoyable happening at each meeting. This may be organised from external sources or
something more ‘home grown’ like a reminiscence session or indoor games like skittles
Other aspects of the role could include: ensuring that the venue and activities are
appropriate and safe for our members; engaging with other volunteers so that the
sessions run smoothly; preparing monthly returns for the finance team, keeping records
of how many members have visited the club, submitting any expenses for cost incurred
on the club’s behalf.
