Lifetime’s Care4me Volunteering Opportunity of the Week

Each week Lifetimes chooses one of our current volunteering opportunities listed on our community directory and volunteer brokerage platform, Care4me, as our ‘Volunteering Opportunity of the Week’. 

This week the Volunteering Opportunity is for Wandsworth Well Family ServiceThe Wandsworth Well Family Service is an early intervention mental health and well-being service based in a number of GP practices across the London borough of Wandsworth. The service is a frontline source of help for adults with mental ill health who present to GPs with a wide range of additional and often complex, non-medical support needs or social problems. This volunteering role will allow you the opportunity to work directly with clients to provide holistic assessments and a 6-week programme of support around their mental health needs. You will receive training, including e learning and shadowing to help you build up your skills and gain a strong understanding of the work and values of Family Action.

If you would like to find out more information or enquire about this role you can do so by visiting www.care4me.org.uk and clicking on our ‘Volunteering Opportunities Button’. 

If you would like one of your opportunities to be ‘Volunteering Opportunity of the Week’ then please get in touch at assistant@life-times.org.uk and we can guide you through the process of setting up your Care4me profile.

 


 Lifetimes' volunteer brokerage platform, part of our community directory, care4me.org.uk


Using the volunteering button on the site, all organisations registered with Care4Me can  promote their volunteering opportunities. Any individual with an interest in volunteering can also sign up on the site, with a brief profile of their skills they wish to share and areas of work they are interested in.

The brokerage platform is entirely self-funded by Lifetimes, who work to empower and support the voluntary sector in Wandsworth, Richmond, Kingston and the surrounding boroughs. This development was made to assist organisations who will experience difficulties gaining volunteers as the Local Authority no longer supports volunteer brokerage via funding of the service.

To list your organisation’s volunteering opportunities, simply register your organisation or log in at  care4me.org.uk to register your opportunity.

If you are an individual looking to volunteer, you can search our volunteering opportunities or register to create your profile on the volunteer bank here

If you have any questions about using the service, please do not hesitate to contact us at 0208 875 2849 or assistant@life-times.org.uk
