Volunteers: Health & Care needs you!

Dear Volunteer,

As I am sure you are aware the people of Devon have come forward to help those most effected by the current COVID19 crisis. Volunteers are already providing much needed support to the most vulnerable in our communities however, as COVID-19 puts more pressure on our health and social care services we are looking for High Impact Volunteers who can help support vulnerable people in their homes.

We are looking for people with recent experience as a health or social care worker, both qualified and unqualified. We will ensure you are trained, supported and equipped to help a vulnerable person, or someone who may have dementia, a disability or a mental health problem with a range of tasks vital to their wellbeing, including helping people in their own homes.

You may be asked to provide a routine check on their health or welfare, you might be asked to help someone to eat or drink, to do essential laundry or cleaning, or to help prepare someone’s home in advance of their discharge from hospital. High Impact Volunteers will require DBS checks. If you are interested or would like further information, please contact West Devon CVS at volunteering@westdevoncvs.org.uk.

Thank you, your time and efforts are very much appreciated.

Best regards, Devon County Council
