We have 2 Day Programmes— the Totara Club and Harakeke Club in Christchurch. These programmes give older people from the community an opportunity to catch up with others and share activities and experiences. Members attend the Day Programme at least once a week. The programmes aims are to keep people socially active and enjoy their time away from home. We are looking for Volunteers to assist the Van Drivers to transport clients to and from their homes to the Day Programmes. You can choose afternoon or morning, either once a fortnight or once a week.
The Morning shift is from 8:45am - 11:00am or 2:30pm - 5:00pm
The Van Assistants travel in the van. They have an important role as they will be there to greet the client and make sure that they have everything they will need for the day, including their keys. There are approximately 8 clients in each van. No experience in the role is required. If you have had experience of being around older people it can be very helpful. The training will be given on the job. Note that there is no driving involved.
