Volunteering opportunity at My Home Life

My Home Life, 18 Sept 2013-1Make a real difference to quality of life in care homes- volunteer needed!

We are looking for a dynamic individual to volunteer in our team to:

  • Gather stories of good practice from care homes
  • Create materials that convey new practice ideas that can be distributed across the sector
  • Directly support our networks of care homes to take forward new ideas for improving quality

Ideally, we are looking for someone who has experience of working with or in care homes and recognises the vital role that they play. We want someone who is self-motivated, a team player and is able to offer 1-2 days a week to help us. In return, My Home Life can help you develop your thinking, your skills and feel part of a growing movement aimed at promoting quality of life in care homes.

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.
