Job description

Independent Living Volunteer - Transport Support

Could you help us to support someone experiencing a health and social care crisis?

Location: Argyll

Commitment: 1-3 Journeys per week, service operates Monday to Saturday.
Minimum of 12 months commitment.

Age: 18 years+

Volunteers for this role must hold a full UK driving licence.

Good interpersonal skills are essential.

In 2020 the British Red Cross turns 150. It is thanks to all our supporters and volunteers that we have been able to provide health and social care support to people since 1870. Our volunteers provided health and social care support to people in the First and Second World war and continued providing these services in peace time and helped to create the NHS in 1948.

Today we continue to provide health and social care support through our Independent Living service that aims to support people experiencing a health crisis. From supporting people resettle into their homes after being discharged from hospital to supporting someone connect with others following a recent diagnosis of a long-term health condition. Help us continue our story by applying to volunteer with us today.

What would I be doing?

You will be helping provide practical and emotional support to people. Every individual will need different support from us to help, below are some examples of what you might support with:

  • Practical support such as light shopping for someone who has been discharged from hospital
  • Reconnecting people someone with their communities to help overcome loneliness
  • Helping someone connect with other organisations who can offer them support with their long-term health condition

If this is something that you feel you could support with we encourage you to submit your application form without delay to avoid disappointment, as this vacancy may be closed prior to the published closing date if we receive a sufficient number of completed applications.

"I'm showing compassion, empowering people, letting them know what help is out there, and helping them move forward." Lisa, Independent Living Volunteer

Next Steps

You will be contacted shortly by someone from our friendly recruitment team and successful applicants will be invited to a telephone interview, this will be an opportunity for us to find out more about you and for you to find out more about this role. Following this interview if we both agree to continue with recruitment, we will invite you to meet the team and take part in our induction training where you can find out more about what it is like to be a volunteer for the British Red Cross.
