Location Helpers are based in the community supporting a terminally ill patient and/or their family in Grampian. There is no set meeting point as the volunteer will be supporting a client in their own home.
Description

Are you a good listener?
Could you be there to support to others and really make a difference?

The Marie Curie Helper service is looking for volunteers who can offer valuable emotional and practical support for people and their families living with a terminal illness - like having someone to chat to over a cup of tea, help to get to an appointment or run an errand, or just be there as a friendly ear. You will be matched with someone who you'll visit in their home, go out somewhere with or chat to over the phone. The Helper service is entirely based around the person who is terminally ill and their family. How you spend your time with them really depends on what is needed at that time.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Volunteers attend an information session followed by a 1:1 interview.
If they wish to proceed we ask them to attend a 2 day training course (this can be split over evenings).
A 2 hour follow up prior to being matched with their client. Regular support from other volunteers and the Helper service manager is on going throughout their time volunteering with Marie Curie.
