Getting Involved

 

Do you have a spare hour a week to help someone who is recovering from illness or is home from hospital?


While many people are happy to recover at home when they recover from illness or are discharged from hospital, many also feel anxious and frightened. Others may need some help with some of the practical issues of being at home and recovering from illness or injury. The kinds of tasks that volunteers may take on include shopping, helping with paperwork and small household jobs, or even just having a cup of tea and a chat. The project allows people to volunteer flexibly, to fit in with their other commitments.

To volunteer, you’ll need to register with us at Reach Out and complete all the usual checks so that we can get you started.

You can do this by contacting the team directly, or by clicking on the top right register button of the web page. It will take you to a basic online form where you'll need to provide the following:

 

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Availability

 

Once the sign up is complete, a member of our team will then be in touch with you to arrange to meet you, either in person or via an online platform such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams in order to begin the induction process.

 

Please Note:

 

All recruited volunteers will be required to provide contact details of two references will also be required to complete a DBS check.


All volunteers will be asked to sign a Volunteer Agreement and to adhere to the Reach Out Volunteer Policy and all Reach Out guidelines, policies and procedures.
