Become an activity group lead

As an activity group lead, you’ll take turns leading the monthly session and support the other activity group leads when it’s their turn to lead. You’ll also socialize with the older people at the activity group, ensuring that everyone feels supported and listened to.
The activity group will be at the same community venue and will include older people, activity group leads, drivers, and the activity group coordinator. Activity groups normally last around two hours and will include an activity that gets people moving such as dance, chair exercises, boules, skittles, or boccia.
Activity groups are free monthly groups that are open to older people who are lonely, isolated, and in need of companionship. Activity groups are a great way for older people to stay active and to make new friends in their local area.

To become an activity group lead, you’ll need to:

• Attend a 30-minute online volunteer group induction.
• Submit a DBS check.
• Provide a reference.
• Complete online volunteer training modules.

Tasks include:

• Welcoming older people to the activity group and making them feel comfortable.
• Taking turns with other activity group leads to deliver fun, safe, and inclusive activities that get older people moving.
• Following the guidance in the online volunteer training so that the activity groups are safe, enjoyable, appropriate, and in line with our charitable aims.
• Keeping in regular contact with the activity group coordinator so they know when you’re available to lead an activity.
• Reporting any concerns to the activity group coordinator.
• Keeping your knowledge and training up to date by reading our monthly volunteer newsletter – Re-engage Matters.
