Female Polish Speaking Volunteer – East Surrey Live at Home Scheme

In Volunteer Opportunities, Practical by Lisa Irwin

East Surrey Live at Home Scheme are looking for a female Polish-speaking volunteer who could support an elderly lady in Horley to start attending their Wednesday morning club (10am – 12.30pm).

The lady will have a carer who accompanies her for the first six weeks, and the volunteer’s role will be to act as a friendly intermediary – translating dialogue between people, making sure she understands what’s going on so she can participate, introducing her to anybody she wants to speak to, helping her forge new friendships. The volunteer’s input may continue for some time after the carer withdraws.
