Commitment

  • The volunteer will need to be available during the daytime (morning/afternoon) for a few hours each week. Specific timings will be confirmed.

What else do I need to know?

  • Mildmay is one of our extra care schemes where you will be assisting with activities that can engage our older residents and promote wellbeing and interaction. The sessions will be tailored for the elderly so they will be at a slow pace.

Expenses

  • We will cover travel expenses on any day that you volunteer with us. We will also pay lunch expenses of up to £5 if you spend more than four hours a day volunteering for Notting Hill Genesis. Expenses for lunch and travel can be paid monthly only on production of receipts. We do not want you to be out of pocket as a result of your volunteering, so please keep all of your receipts and remember to claim what is due to you!

Background checks

  • A DBS check is required
