QME Care

Volunteering & Support

We are looking for volunteers of all ages to help with a range of roles such as:

  • Companionship Volunteers
  • Gardening
  • Activities
  • Fundraising
  • Awareness Raising
  • Befriending

Companionship Volunteers

Our aim is to provide a service that helps improve health and well-being, providing companionship to increase confidence and reduce loneliness and isolation. Companionship/Befriending visits are tailored to meet the needs of our residents with volunteer companions/befrienders carefully matched to residents based on shared interests. They can accompany their ‘companion’ to groups of interest to help build their confidence or return to a hobby they previously enjoyed. During a weekly or fortnightly visit to their assigned resident, volunteers will provide friendship and companionship. This might include participating in shared interests, playing a game, going for a stroll, or simply having a cuppa and a chat.

We would be delighted with any assistance that you can offer, helping us to enrich the lives of our residents and people with dementia in our community.
