Part-time voluntary placement in a team promoting quality of life in care homes offering events organisation & communications experience

My Home Life has an exciting new volunteering opportunity. We are looking for someone interested in helping us to build and support the movement of people involved in taking forward our shared My Home Life vision of a world where all care homes for older people are great places to live, die, visit and work.

We carry out a broad range of activities that a volunteer could get involved in, but we’re particularly looking for support in communications and events. We can be quite flexible about time commitment, but it would be helpful if you were available for some hours on two days a week (based on feedback from our previous volunteers).

We are open to applications from people from all walks of life: from current students to retirees, and anyone in between. If you’re interested in some time developing your career plans and CV-building during your volunteering placement, we’d be happy to support that.

The placement is based in the School of Health Sciences at City University London. This is an unpaid voluntary position, though travel expenses from London Zones 1-6 can be covered on request.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity

The organisation has indicated the following requirements from volunteers who want to take this opportunity:

  • Good eye for detail; Excellent written and spoken English; Working knowledge of Office programs
  • Planning/Organising

To apply:
