Age Cymru is developing a model of practice for volunteering in care homes. A short term pilot is focussing on supporting contact between residents and families as Covid restrictions allow.

It will produce guidance and reflective evaluation for wider use and to support the development of longer term initiatives, including collaborative working between organisations and sectors.

This session will involve a number of interactive approaches to enable participants to explore and share ideas about what effective volunteering in care homes might look like, who benefits and how it can be sustained and supported. Register here

Care Home Visitor Support Volunteer

This is an exciting new role that has been designed to help care homes welcome visitors in line with Covid-19 rules. After a year in which visiting care homes has been significantly restricted because of Covid-19 regulations, we know that friends or family are keen to be able to return to visiting their loved ones. This volunteering opportunity will play a key role in supporting care homes with visiting as they seek to welcome visitors. Find out more here
