Job Description

Love reading? For many of our older residents, reading is a useful mental exercise to aid memory, discuss literary themes and debate issues in a lively atmosphere which improves service users’ quality of life.

Main Activities:

  • Inviting service users to decide what they wish to get out of the weekly book groups.
  • Inviting service users to suggest books, as well having your own input.
  • Choosing a book(s) for residents to read for the following week’s discussion.
  • Creating a comfortable atmosphere which will encourage and motivate service users to maximize their learning and build confidence.
  • Exploring books from service users’ generation and/ or home country
  • Discussing book and film adaptations

Support to Volunteers:

  • Volunteers receive face-to-face training and induction, and will be supported to access mandatory and optional e-Learning courses
  • Volunteers work alongside experienced staff and often collaborate with other volunteers
  • Reasonable travel and lunch expenses will be reimbursed
