Volunteering is a great way to develop new skills, contribute your experience and give back to your community. You could be someone who is looking to build their confidence, add work experience to your CV; get more involved in your local community or just want to meet like-minded people. We welcome volunteers to help run the community larder, social groups, activities and to support our Crisis Management Team.
Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change is also working with Age UK to recruit Community Welfare Volunteers for a Home and Hospital Discharge Scheme to make sure patients that have recently been discharged from hospital are settled and well. As a Community Welfare volunteer you’ll be providing companionship and welfare checks to make sure that people are making a good recovery. Volunteers under this scheme will be supported by Age UK’s Home and Hospital team.
Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change is part of the Tempo Time Credits scheme. So any volunteering you do with us will be recognised through the credit scheme: for every hour you volunteer, you’ll receive one time credit.
The time credits you accrue can be exchanged for vouchers for a range of activities such as cinema tickets, entry to attractions, childrens’ holiday clubs and food offers with local and national scheme partners.
