Intergenerational Workshop Volunteer

InCommon

You did not enter a postcode in the search, or the postcode for this role is unknown.

Our intergenerational workshops connect school children and young people with older people in retirement homes. We’re looking for volunteers to support the smooth running of these workshops.

Our workshops usually take place on weekday lunchtimes and last for around two hours. All of our workshops are led by trained facilitators.

Volunteers support workshops by:
- Assisting with on-the-day workshop preparation and clearing up
- Getting involved with the workshop activities (joining in games, assisting the facilitator, helping pupils with reading and writing etc.)
- Supporting older participants with additional needs (e.g. hearing difficulties, mobility issues, memory loss etc.)

We ask that volunteers can commit to at least 6 months, ideally volunteering at a rate of once or twice a month.
