Growing Support are looking for friendly volunteers with interests in gardening and supporting people, to help older people and people with dementia take part in gardening activities. 

 

You will volunteer alongside an expert Social and Therapeutic Horticulture Facilitator to help care home residents access all the benefits of taking part in fun activities outside in their garden. 

 

In return, Growing Support provides:

  • Initial training and on-going support
  • The chance to learn new skills and have fun
  • An opportunity to support some of the most vulnerable members of your community
  • Reimburse travel expenses

 

Deadlines for applications: 26th January 2018, informal interviews will take place on Tuesday 30th January 2018 and Induction Training on Tuesday 6th February 2018.
