Volunteers play a vital part in providing a greater quality of life for the Chelsea Pensioners who live at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
From escorting them to hospital appointments, to giving painting or singing lessons, volunteers play an essential role in our community.
We are currently looking to recruit up to 10 volunteers to contribute to the social inclusion of all Chelsea Pensioners living on the Long Wards (sheltered accommodation) by helping with social activities such as coffee mornings, games afternoons and personal social support as required.
As a volunteer, you should be available during the day for up to one period of three hours per week and be prepared to work on the Long Wards, around the Royal Hospital Chelsea site, and off-site when assisting Chelsea Pensioners with shopping and visits.
Volunteers will be supported and provided with guidance.
You should have good people skills and a willingness to work with an elderly community.
If you are interested in this unique opportunity to volunteer at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, please email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name and contact number and we will send you further information.
Suitable applicants will be invited to accompany a group of Chelsea Pensioners on a visit which is scheduled to take place on Monday 13th January 2014.
Chelsea Pensioners are heading out for a trip on @TheLondonEye - fingers crossed the weather holds for a good view!
