Volunteer with residents of St Augustine's Care Home

← Back to search results

Our volunteers play an essential role in our residents' life at the centre.  You bring them the care, company and understanding they are sometimes deprived of because of their condition.  As we specialise in dementia care, some of our residents have advanced levels of Alzheimer's or other related illnesses.  With you, we can make sure they are happy, accompanied and looked after during their stay with us.

Your role as a volunteer:

Your role allows as much creativity as you like!  As you will be spending time with our residents, we epect a high level of entertainment and joy from both parts.  For instance, by sharing a good conversation, playing board games, assisting them with arts and crafts, or helping them enjoy a good book.

Application process:

There are three simple steps in the application process to become a volunteer at St Augustine's:

  • completing the application forms sent to you once you apply
  • we run a DBS check at no extra cost to you
  • completing our mandatory online courses at your own convenience (also free of charge)

That's it!  Then we meet at St Augustine's to talk about the schedule, your expectations and how happy we are to have you in the team!


What skills do I need?

No necessary skills or qualifications, rather than completing the mandatory online courses.
