Help Carers with their Shopping (CSVA)

← Back to search results

If you’re passionate about improving the lives of unpaid carers in your local area, we’d love to hear from you.

We are Crossroads Care Surrey, an established charity of over 30 years, offering a range of support services to unpaid carers and the people for whom they care.

We put carers at the heart of everything we do and provide support to hundreds of unpaid carers across Surrey every year.

We know that carers really struggle with finding time for their weekly shop or to collect regular prescriptions.

Could you help with this by supporting carers’ shopping trips?

With access to your own vehicle, your valuable support trips usually take between 1 to 2 hours, and if you can provide regular help, we’d love to hear from you.

We will support you through training as well provide advice and support with any issues or concerns that may arise from your visits.

What skills do I need?

• Access to a laptop and/or mobile phone and ability to connect to cloud-based telephone and rostering systems would be an advantage.

General caring skills which will include:

• Patience

• Sense of humour

• Listening skills

• Adaptability

• Discretion

• Honesty and reliability

• Confidentiality
