Do you have a skill that you could share?
Can you spare an hour a week?
Could you help an unpaid carer to learn a new skill?
The Carers Reablement Project from the Carers Centre for Brighton and Hove are looking for volunteers with an interest in arts and crafts who could support an unpaid carer to learn a new skill or hobby and achieve positive changes in their lives.
You will be matched with an unpaid carer, who is looking after a family member, or friend to support them to learn a skill or hobby they have chosen. You will generally meet for an hour a week over a period of six to ten weeks to work towards a clearly defined goal. The meetings take place in the carer’s home or in the local community.
Goals could be anything from supporting them to take up painting
or drawing or to develop their photography skills - we also cover other interests
and skills. You can choose what skills you would like to offer.
Enabling a carer to learn a new skill is very rewarding and will allow you to gain experience and develop your own skills.
You will receive out of pocket expenses, training and regular group supervision.
You will be redirected to the Community Works website
