Community Support Volunteer

To assist Crossroads Care Surrey in responding to Covid-19 by facilitating the delivery of essential shopping for Carers and vulnerable people that have been isolated or shielding at home. With access to your own vehicle you will respond to requests made by our Co-ordinators to complete a shopping trip, or a prescription collection, for a vulnerable client. We will support clients to make online shopping orders or will collect cash and shopping lists/prescriptions which you would be responsible for collecting from the relevant shop or pharmacy and delivering to the client.
We support Carers across the whole of Surrey so we are keen to recruit an equal spread of volunteers across all 11 local authority boroughs/districts to support unpaid carers and other vulnerable or at-risk people who may be self-isolating due to Covid-19.
You are not required to respond to every request, however we ask that you are available to receive calls up to 5 days a week between 9-5.30pm, so should you be available and willing to respond at the time of the call we can count on you.
If you are interested in taking this role on alongside another volunteer role, such as the telephone / digital befriender, we would be more than happy to consider you for both.
