Volunteer Host for Healthy Eating Group - Waltham Abbey

Are you kind, friendly and non-judgmental? Are you interested in health and enthusiastic about helping others to achieve their goals? If so this is the role for you!

The purpose of this role is to provide "Front of house" support for a weight management Drop-In once a week at Waltham Abbey Museum.

 What you'll be doing:

 Meeting and greeting people, offering a warm and friendly welcome to the session.

Explaining how the programme works (full training will be given)

Weighing clients & recording their progress

Handing out relevant supporting materials (leaflets, hand-outs etc.)

Generally helping to organise the session (sign-in sheets, set-up, checking resources). We are offering the Drop in session on behalf of Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) as part of their weight management programme. The service is community-based and designed to support people to achieve a gradual, long term weight loss by weighing in at a variety of community sites, accessing the ACE My Weight Matters online programme.




You will be kind, approachable and sympathetic. A non-judgmental attitude is key.

You'll be enthusiastic and positive for people and their goals - weight-loss is difficult and everyone needs some encouragement!

You'll be a good listener, able to chat to people from different backgrounds.

You'll maintain discretion & confidentiality at all times.

You'll have good organisation skills.

You should be happy to work on your own and with a team.

What you will gain: Volunteering is fun! You meet new people, explore new places and get behind the scenes of how things run. It is a great way to try and become good at new things, or get better at things you already do.
