Volunteering

 We are always looking for volunteers. If you’d like to give back, and support people going through some tough challenges then volunteer with us. You can learn new skills and enhance existing ones. We will aim to give you a rewarding volunteering experience with ongoing training and help from a supportive team. 
 
There are currently two projects that need volunteers:
 

Bereavement Help Points

Our Bereavement Help Points project is a new initiative for the Beth Johnson Foundation, developed in partnership with St Giles Hospice in Lichfield and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.  This new service is for anyone age 50+ living in Stoke-on-Trent / North Staffs who has experienced bereavement, either during or prior to the Covid 19 period.  We need volunteers to help us run our online groups.  This role can be undertaken from your own home as all our meetings take place online.  You will need a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone with internet access.

Healthy Generations 

Healthy Generations supports people to self-manage their health and wellbeing. It enables people to learn new skills by getting involved in positive ageing groups, workshop sessions and by using digital technology.
 
Our volunteer tech-buddies help people to break down some of the barriers that prevent them from using digital technology and will provide ongoing support.
 
  • Tech-Buddy Volunteer Role -to help provide older adults with increased knowledge and understanding about self-care and self-management through the use of digital technology and positive ageing groups
 
Whilst we are unable to run the workshop sessions during the Covid-19 period, we have adapted our service to offer telephone lifestyle support.  We need volunteers during this time when people are feeling more isolated, uncertain, fearful and lonely. 
 
  • Telephone Lifestyle Support Service Volunteer Role - individual telephone support around health and wellbeing for people aged 50+ living in Stoke-on-Trent.
