    In Touch Volunteer for the Porter Valley Area 2020/21

    Age UK Sheffield

    This opportunity takes place until 31 Aug 2021.

    Be a part of a transformative new service in our Sheffield community. Lots of older people are struggling with social isolation, confidence and health issues, especially due to the corona virus outbreak. This role includes befriending and visiting a lonely and socially isolated older person, and offer practical support to encourage more independence and self-confidence.

    Porter Valley In Touch Volunteering Project

    Due to the Corona virus outbreak, the project has had to change a little in order to maintain safety and social distancing. However friendships can still be formed and hobbies/ skills can still be shared, whether that’s over the phone, video call, or whilst maintaining a safe, two metre distance with necessary protective items and precautions.

    The project's aim is to reduce social isolation, promote independence, improve self-confidence and enable older people to take control of how they manage their physical and mental wellbeing, so they can age well and live healthier for longer.

    Volunteers will be able to share hobbies and interests with the person they have been paired with, as well as support them to learn, or re-learn new skills such as simple domestic tasks, accessing zoom or skype to keep in touch with family, friends and services that have moved online, or gaining confidence in leaving the house and travelling.

    Bespoke care plans will be produced with achievable goals for the older person to enable them to regain or retain their independence.

    Description of possible tasks:

    • To provide 1-1 support in customer’s homes to regain or retain independence.
    • To engage in meaningful activities with a cared for older person to allow a carer respite.
    • To offer encouragement and support to promote independence.
    • To support and encourage cooking/domestic tasks at home.
    • Support with travel training to increase confidence.
    • Support to access the internet and computer skills.

    Age UK Sheffield Telephone Befriender 2020/21

    Age UK Sheffield

    This opportunity takes place until 31 Aug 2021.

    Could you make a phone call to an older person once a week? During COVID when many of our clients continue to isolate it makes a huge difference to them to hear a friendly voice.

    We usually have a Befriending Service ( our In Touch service)  where we visit older, isolated people in the community but because of COVID-19 many of our clients are isolating. Many of our clients are no longer seeing friends or neighbours and are more isolated than usual. As a Telephone Befriender you will make weekly phone calls checking in and making sure everything is OK. The role is purely social, and many of our clients look forward to having someone checking in on them. For some people a five minute call is enough, for others they find an hour passes pretty quickly! 

    Our volunteers are of all ages from 18 to in their 90s! We welcome everyone. We have also found that the cross-generation of mixing older and younger people can work really well learning about the differences and experiences in each others lives. 

    If you have an hour a week then this would be a very rewarding role to take on!

    This opportunity takes place between 15 Jun 2020 and 31 Oct 2020.

    Interested in cooking? Here's an opportunity to work with a leading food poverty organisation to change the lives of participants and even improve your own kitchen skills! **VIRTUAL COURSES STARTING ON A WEEKLY BASIS FROM 19/06/2020 - START AT A TIME CONVENIENT FOR YOU** Bags of Taste is an award winning food education programme working with people in food poverty to improve their diets, finances and physical and mental wellbeing. We’re very successful at changing what people eat, giving thousands of people the tools they need to move away from regularly buying takeaways and ready meals to cooking tasty and nutritous home-cooked food from around the world on a budget! We need mentor cooks to guide our students through our new virtual courses. Could that be you? Please get in touch!

    Interested in cooking, helping others cook healthy food on a budget, and connecting with people?

    Bags of Taste is an award-winning food education programme helping participants change their diets to improve their finances, physical and mental wellbeing by cooking tasty, healthy, take-away beating meals from scratch for just £1 a head. Now our free cooking and food budgeting classes have gone virtual. Instead of hands on teaching we are delivering our courses virtually via WhattsApp, Facebook, email and phone, and we provide participants with free ingredients to help them to complete the course.

    We need volunteer cook mentors to guide students through a short virtual course incorporating essential cooking skills, carefully selected recipes and meal planning tips using the trademark ingredients bags that we deliver to their homes. Over the 2 week "virtual course", volunteer cook mentors are responsible for keeping in contact with a small group of ‘students’ in a friendly chat, providing practical and moral support, cooking guidance, motivation, feedback and encouragement, and managing peer to peer interaction.  This may be one to one over the phone, or on social media/email. We provide full training and online resources, and you are always supported by an experienced member of staff.

    We also need volunteers to deliver essential ingredient bags to participants - if you have a car or other mode of transport good for delivering shopping this is a really great way you can help out. This will involve collecting between 1-3 bags from S8 9EH and transporting them to the homes of the participants.

    Mentoring students and guiding them through the material is really essential to them being able to complete the course and learn valuable life changing skills - your role is incredibly important!

    As a volunteer you can join our amazing facebook group where you can watch our course tutors doing live cooking demonstrations and where you will have access to all of our delicous recipes from around the world specially designed to be tasty, affordable and simple to make!

    If this sounds like something you'd enjoy please get in touch!

    ** Virtual courses will be starting on a weekly basis from 19/06/2020 onwards so start at a time convenient for you**

    * Please note that fluency in English is essential to the mentoring role; if your English is not fluent you can still help out with delivering essential ingredient bags to students. *
