We are setting up a new service in Bedford working very closely with the local community and in particular carers and service users.
The local community have been very enthusiastic and committed to be highly involved in the new service and wish to volunteer to help support the service and those who attend.
Initially the new service will run one night per week from 5 -9pm, this is subject to change as the service develops.
There will be ELFT staff working there and the volunteer role will be to provide a welcoming face and offer support to those who attend. This will include signposting to other local services and giving out information, leaflets etc.
They will also be responsible for providing the refreshments.
Please note this role has been defined by individuals who have been involved in similar projects within Bedfordshire and believe it reflects the requirement of the role.
