National Youth Advocacy Service recruiting Volunteer Independent Visitors in Kendal Area

NYAS is looking for individuals to befriend children and young people who are in care (looked after by the Local Authority) and have little or no contact with their own parents. Volunteers provide opportunities for children and young people to develop meaningful, long term relationships with adults. When they meet with a child or young person volunteers are expected to carry out an activity of their choice, such as going for a walk, visiting the cinema, watching sports etc. More information

Would you like to help the chaplaincy team at Cumberland Infirmary?

Rev Annie Gray, Chaplain at Cumberland Infirmary, is looking for the following new team members:

1) Ward visiting volunteers who can commit to coming once a week for about two hours to offer a listening ear and if appropriate a prayer.

2) People who can commit to coming about once a month on a Sunday 9.30am-12.30pm to help get people from ward to chapel. Each patient needs two volunteers - one to open doors and one to push the wheelchair. Lots of people are needed to enable a service to take place every Sunday.

3) Ordained bank chaplains to cover days off and holidays. These paid positions can be once per month or more to suit. May include overnight or day time on-call which is paid per hour and extra if actually called out plus car mileage. Must be able to get to the hospital in an hour. Would suit a non-stipendiary or retired person.

Once hospital checks are completed volunteers receive training, parking permit, identity badge and uniform. This can be such rewarding work, with lots of support and training.
